Tetractys is a tripod structure featuring a giant fire kaleidoscope with a tapered mirror system that creates a faceted sphere. Mirror finish stainless steel is used in lieu of glass mirrors, & the fire feature affixed to the top of the pyramid acts as the object chamber featuring geometric metal art to maximize the sphere effect. The kaleidoscope sits on 3 legs, made of structural steel tubing, where participants stand beneath the piece & gaze up into the depths of the pyramid, viewing an infinitely reflected fiery globe which appears to extend beyond the inside of the structure. The exterior will remind the viewer of a futuristic yet neolithic obelisk and is accented with subtle LEDs along the legs with simple patterns to keep the piece visible to passerby.
Six to twelve people at a time will be able to stand beneath the piece & look up as a huge ball of infinitely reflected fire dances & amuses from above. While the piece itself will be perspective shifting & passively interactive in nature due to the fusion of hypnotic kaleidoscopic fire effects & our custom geometric art, we plan to create a control panel allowing several user controlled flame effects within the kaleidoscope.
