The Guild of Graphics is a newly formed nonprofit organization with a passionate mission to educate the public about the basic foundations and elementary laws of design that underpin and unify the arts and sciences. ColorKaleiD features an eclectic blend of 2D and 3D prints, illuminated multi-media projections and whimsical kaleidescope installations that simultaneously "reflect" and "project" colored light. The shimmering patterns and interactive participant shadows complete the final composition.
