PRISMIC ILLUSIONS

A HOLOGRAPHIC REINTERPRETATION OF THE ICONIC PRISM FROM "THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON".

LONDON, UK – 2017

Encapsulating the The Dark Side of the Moon‘s unique DNA, Cinimod recreated designers Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey 'Po' Powell’s infamous cover art in an illusionary medium. 

"This prism, refracted into a spectrum, belongs to everybody." – Storm Thorgerson

Whilst adhering to the original design, the studio’s recreation breathes new life into the iconic glass prism which disperses light into a colour spectrum. Adhering to Richard Wright’s request for "simple and bold", the hologram presents a fascinating visual overload. Casting the viewer into an impossible atmosphere, the physical parallax defies reality, enabling observers to see what can only be perceived as endless space through the vignette. Hidden details afford layers of illusion in the form of a glittering night sky backdrop, complete with celestial nebulae, and the remarkable Great Pyramids of Giza (a source of inspiration for the refracting prism design).
