A Spectral Ocular

Theun Karelse

The making of an instrument to colour the world anew.

The leaves of trees in the park were radiant that morning.
Sunlight piercing freshly pigmented cellulose, against a blue sky, 1000 Portals
Colours sizzling the retina.
Illuminating dusty corners of the visual cortex.

What would it be like to have a tool for colour immersion?
A portable rainbow. Inspired by brass oculars in museum vitrines.

An instrument of spectral rapture,
to re-see the world,
like fresh leaves spring return.
