Commissioned specifically for the DLI Museum and Durham Art Gallery, The Colour of Phi uses the concept of the Golden Ratio as a mathematical and aesthetic principle.


On the horizontal plane, the gallery space is divided into golden rectangles, while on the vertical axis the space is divided according to the Fibonacci numbers scale, creating a mathematical harmony of lines drawn in space with light.


Playing with the idea of light as an aesthetic matter, as well as a matter of energy, we embody it in an optical and physical experience for the visitors; visual imagery, colour and light participate in a light-body-space relationship structured around exact and complex proportions.


Exhibition history:


DLI Museum and Durham Art Gallery, 19 March 2011 - 02 May 2011, Durham, UK. Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
