Australian designer Flynn Talbot recently undertook an experiment in colour and light with the three sided wall installation PRIMARY, a site specific piece that can be scaled to suit any space. Illuminated by three LED light sources to reference the primary colours of light – red, green and blue (RGB) – and using cardboard triangles as its three sided base, Primary was specifically designed to create the right ratio of shadow to play with the opposing light forces. A ten minute programmed light show made for a beautiful landscape of fragmented light, coinciding with a special soundscape to complete the immersive experience.
Visitors to the exhibition were presented with a long view of the piece, most thinking it was simply a 2D projection on the wall. On a closer look the 3 dimensionality of the work became apparent and the depth of the polygons (up to 2 meters) could be seen. The front and side view are very different, each offering a unique and deeply moving visual experience.
