Wavelength Dispersion II
(Proof of concept) Site specific lighting installation for BAF’s “The Garage” Street-Facing Exhibition Space
3 vertically wall mounted RGB laser modules and rotating glass prisms will be pointed at the foot of the garage door and refracted along the walls of the space.
Since an RGB laser uses three colour wavelengths to generate a single hue, the varying refraction caused by the rotating prism will reveal and disperse the individual wavelengths (Fig.1-6). The hue of the laser beams will shift and fade over time. Using a haze machine on a digital timer the installation will sustain enough atmosphere to be visible day and night.
