Paul Malone : Plasma Rainbow Stream
'Plasma Rainbow Stream' is an illuminated installation piece for the 'Colourspace' show in London in 2003. The piece is composed of two tubes, made from blue corrugated roofing sheet, enclosing twelve prepared CD's that reflect and refract the light entering from the centre. The reflections change to create transient volumes of spectral colours as the viewer passes underneath.

Positioned high in the gallery, the piece seeks to emulate, in common everyday materials, the effects of the electric plasma currents that run through the galaxy and illuminate the stars.
