A Refraction of Colour
The 'New Burlington Flare'... a great photo opportunity
Location: 222 New Burlington Place
Description: New Burlington Street is next to Heddon Street off Regent Street and there we find the New Burlington Flare, commonly known as the 3 prisms.
Commissioned by Crown Estates and created by Michael Bleyenberg it is based on holographic elements.
Light foils designed by the artist are embedded between glass and mirrors. As a result of refraction a colour play is created with a rainbow effect.
It makes for a really spectacular photo!
