So, it turns out Keiichi Matsuda's epic 'Prism' insallation wasn't the only installation to be taking over the secret spaces of the V&A museum this London Design Festival.
German designer and artist Rolf Sachs has been playing with the vast stone stairwells of the museum by dropping individual droplets of bright, primary coloured pigments six storeys earthwards to explode in a burst of swirling colour into a small glass water tank.
The explosive climax of the drops journey—although not quite as colourful as we had expected—was amplified somewhat by a booming echo of the impact, picked up by a hypersensitive underwater microphone—similar to those used in the Olympics to detect when swimmers hit the water.
Mr Sach's kindly supplied his installations audience with a number of rudimentary telescopes to behold the droplets at they fall to their colourful end.
