“Is it possible to create an installation that celebrates people uniqueness while laying the foundation for an inclusive society of tomorrow?”
Cosimo Scotucci started from this question to imagine his latest beautiful installation entitled “Spectrum”. Last time he had created inside the Pantheon the largest darkroom in the world, we talked about it here, an installation that wanted to celebrate people, and in particular the courage and attitude of each of us.
This time instead with Spectrum he wants to celebrate diversity and pave the way for a more inclusive society.
New York City will be the stage of his spectacular urban art installation for which the set design is already ready.
In Cosimo Scotucci’s idea, Spectrum requires every screen and billboard in Times Square to display a single monochromatic color, creating an ever-changing composition, showing all possible shades of light.
The Italian artist and architect was inspired by the experiment of the English scientist Isaac Newton, who succeeded in revealing the nature of light through a prism. White light is actually composed of myriad colors that can be observed by passing through a prism.
For Cosimo Scotucci, just as Newton demonstrated with white light and his prism, each individual is a single shade in the full display of colors we call humanity. Times Square is ready to be invaded by the colors of Spectrum, here are all the photos of the installation.
