For the re-naming of the Professor Stuart Hall Building Refracted Prisms creates an ever changing, intangible and dynamic light.

Located overhead in the entrance canopy of the building, a system of prisms has been installed into an existing aperture within the structure, projecting an array of refracted light on to the ground beneath.

This specially commissioned installation piece takes influence from Professor Hall's collaborative work on movements of change and progression. The collaboration between the light and space creates a unique environment that engages people as they move through the space.

The prisms work collectively to both receive and project light through the canopy aperture, taking a flux of light and transforming it into shifting clusters of refracted light beneath. This creates a space that is intangible and ephemeral. Existing without being present.
