‘Over a century after Sir Isaac Newton had dissected the phenomenon of the rainbow, English poet John Keats commented that science had robbed nature and the rainbow of its spectacle by reducing its notion to prismatic colours. ‘Falling Light’ challenges this belief, with a captivating cinematographic interplay between crystal prisms and the preternatural experience they are able to create.

50 ceiling suspended mechanical devices each incorporating a custom cut Swarovski crystal optical lens, a computer programmed motor and a white LED, comprise TROIKA’s installation ‘Falling Light’.
