Play with light using PRISMA 1666.

It makes sense that, in an age of LCDs, we find ourselves able to mold light much like we would clay. Tim Barribeau writes:

PRISMA 1666 is an installation named after and inspired by Sir Isaac Newton’s famous experiments in 1666 on the refraction of light through crystals. First exhibited at the International Science and Art Exhibition in Shanghai, the piece is a set of 15 prisms randomly placed on a white surface, illuminated by two projectors that people can control the color, angle, and shape of using a touchscreen.
