Recently, multimedia artist Chris Cheung (aka h0nh1m) and his team at XEX debuted Prismverse, a brand new art installation, in Shanghai. Blending futuristic elements with traditional concepts, Cheung’s stunning installation is his personal reinterpretation of Chinese philosophy.
The concept of Prismverse originates from brilliant-cut diamonds, or more specifically, the way that light is maximized through brilliant cuts. In the installation, the use of prisms reveals the polychromatic nature of white light, showering the space in a spectrum of rainbow colors. To create complete sensory immersion, Cheung and his team used omnidirectional speakers, LED floor panels, and tessellated mirror walls. Prismverse is an impressive audiovisual experience where visitors can appreciate and marvel at the many miracles of mother nature through invoking images of galaxies, distant stars, rare gemstones, and different forms of light.
