Lots of kids and even some grown-ups interacted with the art installation by painting onto CDs (recycled) their own versions of the scientific colour circle or variations on the colour wheel theme...

A small selection of CDs painted as part of the community sculpture public interaction event held by artist Laury Dizengremel during the finale evening of the Gravity Fields Festival. As they dried, the CDs were hung on the fence next to the large-scale artwork for anyone to admire. Three processions came and went during the evening, and thousands passed by on their way to and from a number of other events held in the town of Grantham that evening.

"I learned so much on this project. Not least of which is that the scientific colour wheel is quite different than the artistic one, even if it has evolved since Newton first documented it. Newton's discovery of the colour spectrum using a prism still stands as one of the most important optical observations."
