Dichroic Aura captures the phenomena of light and color by utilizing dichroic material in order to communicate to the audience the relationship between the ray of light and colors through transmission and reflection. The installation consists of two separate forms. One of the forms has dichroic tinted with warmer colors, while the other one has cooler colors. The warmer piece transmits cyan, blue, magenta, and reflects red and gold; while the cooler piece transmits blue, magenta, yellow, and reflects blue and gold. Throughout the course of the day, as the sun moves across the sky the colors of light move and mix on the ground like an artist’s palette. Due to the location of the sun, the colors in the shadows mix well from sunrise to late morning, and late afternoon until sunset. When the sun is at its highest peak, around noon, the shadows are less likely to mix allowing for the pure colors of each dichroic panel to be seen.
