Carlos Cruz-Diez: Chromosaturations

Venezuelan born, Paris-based installation artist and painter Carlos Cruz-Diez’s Chromosaturation (1969) series presents an idea that simple cues can lead to an entire system of thoughts, beliefs and sensitivities. 22 cabins made of red, blue, and green Plexiglass are positioned in three separate monochromatic chambers, which combine together to trigger the retina to experience a full spectrum of color and light.  Engaging the viewer on a visceral and visual level, this type of installation in 1969 was undoubtedly quite refreshing against a climate of context oriented art.
