Playful Prisms started as an exploration of color: warm versus cool colors and the natural progression of sunlight from daytime into night. It became an interactive study of colors, patterns, shapes and objects. Visitors are encouraged to turn the orange handles until each display case is filled with matching surfaces-- all four prisms can be turned to show the flat painted sides (which make a picture), pattern of washers, or collection of found objects. All twelve prisms may be matched to form larger patterns across the wall, or rearranged by each visitor for maximum enjoyment.

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
