Colour Transfer is a permanent artwork spanning the underside of Paddington Central’s Westway Bridge commissioned in 2016 by British Land, London. The work comprises of multiple angled coloured mirrors, vertically spanning the height of the brickwork to create an optically vibrant and kaleidoscopic installation. The prismatic shapes mirror the tunnel’s architecture. The colours in the work change depending on where you are within the tunnel. The work appears different from one direction to the other. The coloured mirrors are positioned in a spectral arrangement running from dark red to pale pink when entering the underpass from the left and the opposite when entering from the right. As visitors move, they encounter the fluctuating effect of light and reflections created by the coloured mirrors.
