Prismatic is Hou de Sousa’s newest modern art addition to Washington DC’s downtown. A full kaleidoscope-colored experience that I Lobo You is glad to present to its lovely readers.
An experience of light, color, and space that frames a myriad of perspectives. A very one-of-a-kind art exhibition, that evokes unique feelings and sensations. It encourages its visitors to explore the exterior as well the interior, and walk “inside” of it. This incredible modern art piece is composed of fluorescent cords that weave between a light-weight steel lattice.

The cords have gaps between them that provide some kind of transparency sensation to those that are looking to this form of sculpture art. When walking around the art piece, visitors can notice that the pattern shifts whilst the colorful cords converge and “change” perspective. This modern art seems like to be in constant motion!
Located and designed specifically for Georgetown Waterfront Park, this sculpture was assembled in Brooklyn and designed to fit onto a single 46ft flatbed truck. This modern art‘s rebar lattices were welded together, painted and then interwoven with a fluorescent cord, resulting in a great contemporary art piece by Hou de Sousa. The structure appears to be low in weight, something that is just an illusion.
“Most of the blocks weigh between 170 and 250 pounds, while the three heftiest blocks are in the 350- to 400-pound range,” the team described. “The project withstood 65 miles-per-hour winds during the trip from Brooklyn to DC.”
The contemporary artist‘s Prismatic piece is square in the plan, the installation consists of nine different forms, each varying in size and shape.
