Our Colour

As part of the 2016 Bristol Biennial, Programme was delighted to host a new immersive light installation by artist Liz West.

Transforming a full floor at Programme, ‘Our Colour’ was developed with experts and designed as an experiment in human colour perception. Using light as a sculptural material, the artist explores the physical, emotional and psychological effects of colour within a space.

“Most people rarely have the experience of being completed immersed in pure colour. I observe that after moving through the space – walking, running, dancing – and experiencing every colour, people often go back to the colour they find most comfortable; they will then stand, sit or lay there for some time to reflect.”
