Taking place at the festival, the Spectra art/light tower is sure to draw a huge crowd. It's a stunning seven-floor band of colours, as seen in a rainbow, produced by separation of the components of light by their different degrees of refraction according to wavelength. During the day, a succession of Perspex window panels bathe the space inside with intense colors and offer vibrantly colorized views of the surrounding festival grounds. At night, radials of LED cover lighting in the ceiling illuminate the panels, turning the tower into a solid beacon of dispersive refraction and throwing those inside into silhouette. The tower is the perfect blend between the California desert landscape and the sky!
