colours do not exist.


colour is made up in our minds, as the result of complex processes of observation, comparison and adjustment.


In this piece, light of alternating wavelengths sets in motion giant patterns on the ground.


What seemed to be one and the same can suddenly appear totally different.


What was standing still is suddenly shaking, tilting or endlessly expanding.

Our perception is limited to our senses and what we see is subject to the conditions.


The world has countless perspectives and color is an effective metaphor.


And movement can be in the mind
