Color and texture collide in the long trails of suspended number-forms created by designer and architect Emmanuelle Moureaux. Known for her dazzling large-scale installations, her latest work called Slices of Time made its February debut at the NOW Gallery in London. It is an extension of Moureaux’s 100 Colors series, and her latest piece utilizes the titular number of hues in addition to white. The seemingly endless array of forms, comprising 168,000 separate pieces in total, are arranged in a circular formation to represent the earth—as if it were floating in the exhibition space.
In addition to the stimulating visual element, there is also an interactive component to Slices of Time. Visitors are given the opportunity to not only marvel at Moureaux’s dangling layers of abstracted forms, but they can take a moment to recall a date that is significant to them. Once they have it, they can write the date on a round piece paper in a colored pen. It is then placed on the gallery window along with dates from other viewers to create a “kaleidoscope of color” and supplement Moureaux’s massive work.
Slices of Time is scheduled to be on view until April 19, 2020 (although the NOW Gallery is temporarily closed due to COVID-19).
