A modern ice palace
A modern ice palace. Prismatica turns heads with the countless colourful reflections made by its giant prisms. Visitors can walk among them to see city life in every colour of the spectrum, and turn the prisms to make the colours dance. After sunset, the enormous interactive kaleidoscope's illusory effects reach a crescendo.
Prismatica is a participatory installation comprising 25 pivoting prisms more than two metres tall. Each one is made of panels covered with a dichroic film that reflects the colours of the rainbow, varying with the light source and viewing angle. Each prism is mounted on a base containing a projector that gives the installation a new dimension after nightfall. The rotation of the prisms triggers ariable-intensity bell music.
The Prismatica installation looks great and the opening on Saturday was a huge success. We were very happy with the Creos team and grateful to have the extra hands during our holiday break. Thank you!
Thank you for a very successful Light City 2018! It was truly a pleasure working with you and the Creos team. Everyone was incredibly professional, and I felt honored to work with such a stellar team! Prismatica by far exceeded our expectations – it was definitely a showstopper at Light City! On Instagram, Prismatica received a tremendous amount of likes (1,042 to be exact). I would welcome any opportunity in the future to work with you and your team again, and look forward to seeing what is next for Creos.
We contracted Prismatica for our 2016 Georgetown GLOW light art kition. Working with the Creos team was fabulous. They are true professionals – always personable, responsive and flexible. The installation and breakdown of Prismatica went flawlessly, and it truly elevated the third edition of GLOW. The prisms were a huge attraction that brought many visitors to our Georgetown Waterfront, even on the coldest nights. We definitely look forward to collaborating with Creos in the future.
It's already up, and organizers say kids are already going crazy over it. It's very interactive and is meant to be interacted with, not just looked at.
