Kaleidoscopic Installation Lets Visitors Experience What It’s Like to Step Inside a Diamond

XEX Prismverse Shanghai

Multimedia artist Chris Cheung and his creative team (collectively known as XEX) have just debuted their impressive audiovisual installation, titled Prismverse, in Shanghai, China for Dr.Jart+. The installation invites visitors to enter a energetic playground for the senses, as they're met with what seems to be an infinite number of geometric mirrors. Essentially, it's like walking into a giant gem.

The concept of Prismverse was inspired by the way in which light is augmented through the multi-faceted cone of a brilliant cut diamond. The use of prisms reveals the spectral nature of white light, showering the space in a feast of rainbow hues. The audience is treated to a complete sensory immersion through the use of multi-directional speakers, LED floor panels, and prismatic mirror-walls.
