Heofon is a 2m high maze based on triangular geometry made from panels of acrylic glass. The panels reflect or shift the light rays along the entire colour range of a rainbow while spectators move inside the installation.

On the outer perimeter, the panels are covered with a mirror film converting the interior in an infinity room – a unique cosmos of overlapping light patterns and constantly changing colours. A dichroic film on one side of the acrylic glass converts the panels into semi-transparent and reflects the light rays along the entire colour range of the rainbow whilst the spectator moves through the installation.
