The colors embedded in these auto-animating panels are drawn from Texas native wildflowers: Gaillardia pulchella and Lupinus texensis. The artist extracted single points of color from photographs of the flowers to build the palettes for the artwork. The assembly of each frame includes a layer of ceramic fritted glass, an array of thin colored lines printed on a layer of clear acrylic, a light diffusion layer, and an l.e.d. light source. The precise relationship between the frequency of the printed colors and the fritted lines of the glass layer results in the color shifting phenomenon you witness as you move past the panels.
