Neo was created for Studio 21’s Colour Notes exhibition. If you show it a colour it is recognised and reflected using a digital colour sensor. When not reflecting a selected colour Neo cycles through the rainbow. A video of Neo cycling through colours is below.
Neo was created in response to a Studio 21 exhibition. The challenge was to consider the significance of colour in our lives and work. It was far more challenging than anticipated. I knew that colour but had not really consider why or what colour, so I kept a colour journal. In it I monitored the colours around me over a 6 month period, which also included a trip ‘home’ to Melbourne.
I realised that almost all colours attract me – depending where they are and what they are juxtaposed with. Mostly I realised that where earth colours make me feel grounded, a spectrum of colour lifts my mood. Colour made by light, like stain glass windows or reflected coloured lights feels magical. Neo embodies reflecting coloured light and Mujigea and Jigu combine a rainbow with earth colours.
Neo travelled with the Colour Notes Exhibition to London, Dublin, Harrogate, Cumbria and Dorset. For more information about Colour Notes visit the Studio 21 Website
