Prism Contemporary

Artist Daksha Patel is currently exhibiting at our gallery, her work is inspired by her residency at Blackburn Yarn Dyers where she explored the chemical structures of different yarns and the mechanical process of transferring colours to yarn.
The installation shown is based upon the chemical structure of kerotene, a protein molecule that is one of the principle components of wool. Each cone represents a different element such as nitrogen, carbon or oxygen and the black lines between them. There are lights embedded within the cones to reveal that perceptions of colour can change with different light conditions.
