The Kaleidoscope is
traditional concept toy. This toy has been played with by generations who have
enjoyed its optical effects. A2arquitectos has decided to build this large
scale model of the Kaleidoscope so people can interact with it.
The piece consists of
a Hexagonal reflective tunnel measuring 6 meters in length and 2 meters in height. The
magic is created by reflecting external views, reflections and the people
walking inside them, thus creating multiple worlds to explore.
Such elements include
light and the visitor who trigger a set of reflective effects. This illusion
forms the key aspect of the kaleidoscope; the unusual shapes, repetition of
pattern and beautiful colours engender a dream-like world.
The piece allows
people to walk inside and interact with all the space, part of their own
kaleidoscopic effect experiencing a strange sensation of weightlessness from
the view that is created.
