Jayson Haebich created this project was created for his residency at the Institut Fur Alles Mogliche in Berlin during April 2015 and is about the transformation of pure white light into many different colours and textures through the process of diffusion. More info after the jump!
This transformation occurs by taking homogenous, highly concentrated white light from a laser and scattering it into a dazzling array of colours and textures by shining it through a pile of broken glass and mirrors. The work consists of a large pile of broken glass and mirrors and white light from a laser which passes through the glass and and is refracted and diffused throughout the room, splitting the white light into its component colours. The glass also absorbs some of the light giving it a glowing almost phosphorescent effect that produces beautiful shades of blues, greens, pinks, purples and yellows.
