52 glowing, ever changing prism panels hang suspended above the escalator in this California shopping center.
Ever-changing rainbow light art installation made from Sunlight, prisms and architecture
Using suspended solar prisms, Peter Erskine's site-specific, installation transforms ordinary Sunlight into rich panels of radiant color. As visitors move up and down the escelators, and through the space, the glowing hues continually shift in composition and saturation. Always a frersh offering.

Alive and responsive, the 52 suspended prism panels of this light art installation continuously refract ever-changing patterns and colors of light. The organic morphing of shape and brilliant hues is interactively created by the the viewer’s position in the space and the changing ambient lighting conditions. We actually create and change this art as we step into it. And, as we move under and around it, the swooping, floating array breathes and morphs like a giant floating moire pattern. The colors and patterns radically shift with time of day, season, and solar or electric light.
