We all love a bit of colour in our lives, right? It’s the spice that can turn the drabbest of life experience into a wealth of vivid wonder, taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary. Carlos Cruz-Diez has been exploring the kinetic movement of colour in his celebrated works, creating interactive manufactured chambers that lures visitors to rethink their perceptions of colour in their everyday lives.
The installation works in a very personal way, altering the colour of your skin, clothing and anything you so happen to be carrying on your person. It culminates to create an experience that adapts depending on what chamber you emerse yourself within, drawing attention to the individual experience of processing colour through a disruption in the way that light is received and understood.
These wonderful installations have been developed over many years, and can be explored at the Musée en Herbe en in paris and the Museo universitario arte in Mexico. But if you can’t make it to these, feast on some images and live your life through a spectrum of colours that can only add a richness to your imagination and a smile to your face.
