Starting from the reinterpretation of a common daily object, Chromatic Screen forms a distinct element and spatial organiser that envelops all visitors in a polychromatic experience with varying moments of opacity and transparency. The result of the Chromatic Screen is a kinetic, technicolored experience.
Designed and constructed for the 2012 Oporto Show, the Chromatic Screen installation is constructed of around 2,000 children’s clothes hangers from IKEA – ‘Bagis’ – in four different colours – blue, green, pink and orange – that when combined merge into multiple tonalities.
