Colour (2017)
3.5’ x 1.5’ Wood Plinth. Welded Steel. Colour Sensor.

Colour is about re-imagining and configuring a physical object into the digital domain. The work proposes a synesthetic experience where colour is made into sound and visually re-worked through interaction. ColourCorrect is composed of a metal sculptural form situated above a rotatable platform which contains a messy amalgamation of abstract colour. Sensors are used to read the colour information from the surface of the platform. As the platform is rotated by a user, new areas of the surface are analyzed by the sensors--producing tones that reflect the emotional quality of each colour. The physical colours on the platform, over time, are drawn on a projection screen in a very mathematized radial manner-- creating an imbalance that contrasts the messy physical imagery with the precise digital realm . The work creates a collaborative and continually in-progress canvas that establishes an ephemeral memory of those subsequent visitors who interacted with the piece prior.
