Unicolor (2014)

Real-time Projection (large-scale screen, mirror walls, bench with loudspeakers, dimensions variable)

Unicolor is based on the way we perceive colour. Unicolor operates with a number of 24 modules, each presenting a different idea of colour perception. You can see that if the RGB is moving fast it turns white because at a higher speed, our brains mix the colour automatically. It’s like a movie – you have 25 still frames per second but we think the image is moving.
