by gabemott on January 31, 2012

If you love color, you know Josef Albers, launch him into 2012  and you have The Color Prism. “This is future stuff, it’s Cyberpunk,Bladerunner, Snowcrash-esque”, according to hive45.

“The Colorbox could be one of the most important works of art ever created.”
-Paul Janes-Brown, art reviewer for, The Maui Weekly and (formerly) The Maui News

The eureka moment of bringing the Colorbox to the playa was simple: Go Big and Triangular. The XBox Kinect has revolutionized digital interactive art forever, but nothing yet has reached for this scale and impact. You step inside to complete the art.
