Chroma Thick

Maddalena Gioglio


ChromaThick is the manipulation of generic liquid paint to obtain a solid thick matter, which becomes autonomous from any surface and support. The manipulation of a spray paint tool enables this application; creating gradients, from microscopic pigments to solid erratic matter. The outcome is a subtle canvas that inhabits the space as a second skin, creating unexpected and diverse visual and programatic effects.

The screen does not strictly follow the perimeter of the room; it suggests a new reading of it, as an informative infrastructure that shows how colour works. ChromaThick aims to develop a consideration on the history and use of colour in space moving away from the flatness of standard paint, opening up a reinterpretation of the way architecture interacts with colours.
