Have you been Colorboxed?
The Colorbox is a novel way to experience color relationships. From a distance, a glowing box changes colors. Getting closer, a small doorway beckons you inside. Once inside, without shadows, immersed in changing color and light, you discover that body movement affects the visual displays around you. You are in control of the room, using your body to see how color is relative.
The installation, born at the multimedia and arts Festival SOURCE on Maui, has since been installed at the Hilton Waikaloa on the Big Island of Hawaii for Alchemeyez as well as at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center for the Maui Film Festival. The Colorbox uses body detection inside the enclosed room to generate visuals that range from the ethereal to solid color in pure relationship.
For those outside the box, they see, but do not experience the same thing you do. Inside the box, behind the veil of a 40 foot wrapped screen, you create the visual experience around you.
Simply put, it’s a box you can step inside. The walls are screens projected upon from the outside by visuals you create with your body. Some you control, others you only effect. The people outside the box see the same visuals you see.
The Laws of Color are in your Hands! Beyond themes like “Shadow and Projection” exists the realm of art that supersedes a plan; collaboration. You experience viscerally how your visual perception is hardwired. You complete the art.
