A Prism of Colour and Light
An exploration into the symbiotic relationship of colour and light, Through No.3 by Liz West has returned to Leeds Dock. A proud reference to Isaac Newton’s discovery that white light’s colour composition could be proven by refraction, the six-metre long triangular prism is located by Tesco.
A sundial enlivened by sunlight, the public art piece spectacularly reflects a riot of colour across the ground – a wonderful burst of brightness for even the frostiest of days!
West says “Making your way inside the multi-coloured corridor through either side of the structure, visitors will see the world around them transformed by saturate colour. The coloured barrier between the outside and inside will create a multi-coloured striped cloak and distortion in an array of different hues, transforming the usual colourations and appearance of the outside environment.”
Curated by Allied London in partnership with Castlefield Gallery, the installation has been reinstated at Leeds Dock after its stint at Duke of York Square in Autumn last year.
