Evanescent

Created by: Chimera Atelier & Pineapple Design Studio

Country: NSW, Australia

Evanescent: meaning fleeting, soon passing out of sight, from memory or existence. An example of evanescent is the way a mirage disappears.

EVANESCENT is an artwork driven by the forces and natural occurrences within the changing world around us. The use of dichroic film creates the illusion of the bubble-like form. The original meaning of dichroic, from the Greek dikhroos, two-coloured, refers to an optical device which can split a beam of light into two beams with differing wavelengths. These properties give the dichroic film it unique aesthetic effects, mimicking those of the bubble.
