Folded Heart

 
 

Folding over light

Using a variant of Rayform's algorithms, this lens prototype redirects incoming light in the shape of a heart by folding the light over itself. The result is a heart made of light which looks similar to the patterns visible at the bottom of the sea. When the piece is rotated, the light moves in a dynamic and complex motion.

It is also possible to colorize the pattern by applying a special color filter on the lens.
