The fine, colorful stripes projected on the display gradually expand to fill the whole screen, while the colors of the stripes change over time. The concept behind the work is colors in motion constructed and transformed by mathematical calculations. A computer application takes advantage of digital technology to control the brightness, hue and saturation of the colors. Each stripe consists of two colors, top and bottom, whose gradations form a color bar, mixed by the artist's own, self-programmed algorithm to produce this constantly changing image in real time. MUTOH Tsutomu Profile MUTOH Tsutomu is primarily involved in using computers to fuse existing creative concepts in the arts with electronic media and technology in experiments in new forms of visual communication. Through research on dynamic and spatial expression of color, he creates interactive illuminations in which changing colored light transforms our visual environment. Past Exhibition / Event *This work has been developed with the support of the "Foundation of technology supporting the creation of digital media contents," a research area of Precursory Research for Embryonic Science and Technology, provided by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).
