Art Installations at Scottsdale Waterfront:
PRISMATICA features 25 giant revolving prism sculptures. Walk among these prisms to see city life in every color of the spectrum or turn the prisms to make the colors dance. After sunset, the enormous interactive kaleidoscope’s illusory effects reach a crescendo. The rotation of the prisms also triggers variable-intensity bell music.
Reflection Rising by Poetic Kinetics is a suspended kinetic sculpture that reaches from Marshall Way Bridge to the Soleri Bridge above the Arizona Canal. Beneath an open sky, tethered elusively on the cusp of flight, Reflection Rising is a constant reminder of nature moving around us.
