The vast array of colors in architect and designer Emmanuelle Moureaux’s new art installation 100 Colors Tokyo may seem overwhelming at first, but that it’s intended purpose. The piece is meant to replicate the feelings Emmanuelle felt upon her first visit to the city. As she walked the streets, she couldn’t help but feel the heavy presence of the city’s seemingly never-ending layers of soaring skyscrapers, blinking signs, and dangling wires. With each turn, another layer and a new array of colors. But she soon realized that through the right interpretation, this was a thing of beauty, and sought to display this through her installation.
Emmanuelle presented 100 Colors Tokyo at the Shinjuku Creators Festa 2013 to great response, where visitors were invited to come, sit, and choose their favorite color among the 100 by placing a sticker of the same color on the wall.
