An immersive installation designed for Swarovski, explores the relationship between the refractive qualities of crystal, light, nature and architecture. Parhelia, derived from the Greek for "Beside the Sun", incorporates over 1 million Swarovski crystals in an architectural structure nearly 6m high and features crystallized halos that appear to move about the exhibition space. Inside the structure, a geometric design is reflected infinitely in the honeycomb crystal panelling. A skylight allows natural light to interact with the architecture, thereby creating a dynamic visual display that changes from day to night. Parhelia explores the sensory influence of crystal, and their phototropic effect on humans.
