‘All Colours White’ explores the relationship between what is natural and artificial and the plurality of seemingly indivisible entities and experiences. It consists of a mechanism which projects red, blue and green light onto a canvas sculpture. The projection is a constant loop of 12 minutes. Initially distinct, the colours gradually bleed into each other, creating an intricate spectrum until their collective amalgamation results in pure white light.
In the installation the natural and the digital collide. The specific combination of red, blue and green references the colours that mediate our digital experience, while the composite colour spectrum inherent in white light is intrinsically natural. With a particular interest in temporality, subjective experience and the frameworks through which we perceive the world, ‘All Colours White’ investigates that which coexists but cannot be experienced simultaneously.
‘All Colours White’ was first exhibited at Art Basel Miami 2016. A larger, free-standing iteration was first shown at group exhibition ‘Artefact Expo 2017: The Act of Magic’ at STUK, Leuven in 2017.
