Liz West’s Our Spectral Vision is Inspired by Issac Newton’s Prism Experiments #ArtTuesday

NewImage

Super cool art from Liz West via creative boom. If you’re anywhere near the Natural History Museum in London before November 6 you should check this out!

The artwork invites us to explore our relationship with colour and our understanding of how we see it. Creating a vivid environment that mixes luminous colour and radiant light, rays from every colour of the rainbow beam through seven prisms made from special colour filter glass, offering an atmospheric illusion that will stimulate your visual perception of colour.

It’s considered to be an interpretation of and inspired by Issac Newton’s experiment with disassembling and reassembling white light into the visible colour spectrum using prisms. Liz explains: “The iridescent patterns and colourings present on the birds, insects and animals in the Natural History Museum collection have inspired the variety and selection of colours in this artwork. The science behind the natural processes of colour researched here at the Museum has provided the backbone for my work.”
