Our Spectral Vision is a new work by Liz West commissioned as part of the Color and Vision: Through the Eyes of Nature exhibition at the Natural History Museum, London Our Spectral Vision which invites visitors to explore their relationship with color and our understanding of how we see this. The work creates a living environment that mixes luminous color and radiant light. Rays of light in every color of the rainbow will shine through seven prisms made from special filter glass, creating an atmospheric illusion that will boost your visual perception of color.
