Red, blue and green lights move across a faceted triangular structure creating multicolored shadows in this installation by Australian lighting specialist Flynn Talbot. He created a three-sided panel with one surface covered in spiky cardboard structures of up to two meters in length.

The projected primary colors mixed in different combinations to create cyan, magenta and yellow, which in turn blended into various tonal shadows when reflected off the angled facets.

Talbot explains: “Color in light is different to paint. Red and green paint make brown but with light they create yellow. The wall sculpture is designed to break up the light and explore the mixing of color.”
