A Kinetic Sculpture by Felipe Pantone Slides into a Hypnotizing Kaleidoscope of Color

Argentinian-Spanish artist Felipe Pantone makes the relationship between color theory and human action tangible. His latest kinetic sculpture, titled “Subtractive Variability Manipulable 3,” features three translucent slides that shift to create hypnotic gradients. In cyan, magenta, and yellow, each piece visualizes the variances of subtracted color when affected by human touch.

In a statement, Panton said he “evokes a spirit in his work that feels like a collision between an analog past and a digitized future, where human beings and machines will inevitably glitch alongside one another in a prism of neon gradients, geometric shapes, optical patterns, and jagged grids.” Many of his colorful works appear pixelated in the physical form of a mural or sculpture.

A limited-edition run of the artist’s kaleidoscopic sculpture will be released by Configurable on May 26. To see more of his vivid projects, head to Instagram. (via Street Art News)

2. Couldn't believe how simple the concept is! Brilliant! So beautiful.

Just occurred to me after looking at the video again, that would be the perfect way to explain to someone how the other colors are constructed, after you have the three primary ones!

People need to take time sometimes to remember their first impressions as children as they actually discovered how beautiful colors are. I remember discovering the existence of red, in kindergarten, seeing it for the first time at the conscious level, in pictures of red tulips, even though I had seen red in the environment around me, had been to scatterbrained to actually focus on anything earlier. Red seemed huge to me.

Same with yellow, at 8 years old, and blue, a little later, with green and lavender looming into view on beautiful dresses my mom got for me, which nearly hypnotized me, the colors being so beautiful. Color really has power for those who are open to it.

3. I don't remember how or when

color affected me. I know color was important to my mother though so she must have shown me. She sent me to school once in a teal dress on St. Patrick's Day! I got pinched a lot but she did insist it had more green than blue.
I spent many years costuming plays. The compliment I received many times had to do with my unusual use of color. To this day I don't know what that is! It just is.

I wish this man's art could be duplicated for education though. The primary colors can become so many beautiful colors that are lost on color wheels.

4. You must have an innate grasp of the psychological impact of colors which enhanced the shows,

to have gotten that response. I'm sure you must, as that field in itself isn't something people just fall into! There's a reason it appealed to you. It's very specialized. You may have noticed there are some people who seem to especially appreciate the skillful placement on characters, and in scenes. Very complex, difficult on multiple levels.

You're so right about the color wheels. They actually make it all not really interesting enough!

Having something that clear to examine as the colors shift and combine, to be able to manipulate and repeat, and test would be a treasure to young, open minds. It would be so damned different from the flat, cut and dried pre-digested forms they have now.

It was great learning you are someone who can design, create stage costumes. That is amazing! Thanks.

5. Thank you, and

I always appreciate your posts. I am still trying to digest the parallel universe in reverse though.
