Emmanuelle Moureaux continues her 100 Colors series, creating a new art installation KNIT IN 100 COLORS for the Japanese wear manufacturer UNIQLO. Being a part of a special exhibition launched by UNIQLO during the Paris Fashion Week 2018, the installation represented an infinite world of colors where visitors can experience the vibrant color palette of UNIQLO knit at a glance.
The colorful world welcomed visitors as they entered the first room of the exhibition. The installation focused on the concept of making infinite colors by mixing colors. When looking at a knit garment, it appears to be a single color, but as you approach it and observe closely, you will notice the color is created by mixing fibers of several colors. Emmanuelle focused on this unseen process of mixing colors to create yarns.
The installation was made with 100 different colors of wool yarns, which were then used to create approximately 10,000 modules that consisted of three colors. The whole composition is placed diagonally in the room so the world of 100 colors instantly gets in the eyes. The tunnel in the center lets visitors immerse themselves inside the colors. The installation changes colors from yellow, pink, brown, green, blue to purple, and a delicate gradation is formed by the blends of mixing colors.
