Prismatica is an interactive art trail of 25 kaleidoscopes each standing 7’6″ tall in Lower Manhattan. The prisms are covered in a dichroic film that reflects all the colors of the rainbow depending on the type of light and angle of viewing. Prismatica is displayed in three privately owned public plazas at 75 Wall Street, 77 Water St, and 32 Old Slip.

The exhibition was originally created for Montréal’s main entertainment district, Quartier des Spectacles. Prismatica will be up until April 21, 2019.
