Crystal Prisms Refract Beautiful Spectrum

Prisma1666 is a beautiful, interactive installation by Super Nature Design and Wonwei that was inspired by Sir Isaac Newton's famous optics and color theory experiments done in the year 1666. The installation consists of 15 triangular crystal blocks that are randomly placed on a clean white surface. A projection of bright colorful graphics is refracted and dispersed by the crystal blocks creating a stunning visual experience of laser-like lights. Prisma won the 2011 Shanghai International Science and Art Award for the best design. Take a look at the video, below, to see what this spectacular visual experience is really all about.
