Prismatica is a new digital video sculpture by mixed-media artist Kit Webster. Pyramid-shaped crystals are illuminated with geometric animations via an imbedded LCD screen and activated by inbuilt programmed software. The crystal-decked screen is housed in a slimline stainless steel frame.

The animated patterns are precisely mapped to the vertices of each crystal so they can be illuminated individually or in formation, so arrays of ever-changing images are created. The animations are further refracted according to the shifting perspective of the observer, which in turn alters the way the patterns appear. As the illuminations also interact with reflections of surrounding light, the overall effect is both intriguing and mesmerising.

A rising talent in cutting-edge technological art and design, Kit Webster is gaining wide recognition for his audiovisual installations and digital sculptures.
