Your Heart is a Prism


An immersive video installation with live light manipulations accompanied by a live sound score, “Your Heart is a Prism” will create a meditative space for the audience. Made through an analog process of filming light through a series of optical media (prisms, crystals, radiant plexiglas, rainbow diffraction grating films, and various lenses), the images are further confused to cast fragments and washes of light all around the space. Parts of the space will be soft and inviting, offering visitors gymnastic mats, carpet, and bean bags to allow the audience “to consider, feel, and project radiant love.”

The title and mantra of this piece was inspired by the “Your Heart Is A Prism!” poster by Peter Glantz, Becky Stark, and Jacob Ciocci."
