To celebrate the London Design Festival 2016, the Aram Gallery in Drury Lane, Covent Garden will exhibit an installation based on paper shredders composed by Netherlands-based creative collective Raw Color.
Each machine is connected with a motion sensor and fed by coloured paper rolls. In essence, the machines rain colourful paper and are activated by the pure presence of the viewer standing in front. The concept of the visual blending of the paper shreds plays with the perception of colour mixing.
This installation was developed as part of the exhibition ‘The Vincent Affair’ curated by Edhv and Wendy Plomp, which sought to represent contemporary counter pieces nodding to Van Gogh’s work. In fact, the original chromatology exhibit was held in the former house of Van Gogh’s love affair Margot Begemann.
