About the Work

Chromatic Myriad reimagines the dynamic relationship between the urban landscape, the architecture of the PHI Centre, and the viewer's gaze through the skillful interplay of optical phenomena such as reflection and diffraction.

With its captivating and impressionistic detour from the everyday, this public art installation invites individuals to appreciate the city anew as they witness the unfolding reflections, shimmering colours, and reconfiguration of the surrounding architecture.

In a perpetual state of metamorphosis, the perception of the landscape is shaped by individual vantage points, encouraging us to play with our viewpoints and discover variations in the colourways.

The work incites curiosity, encourages us to interact with art and enriches the dialogue between the PHI Centre, the public and the city itself.
