Carlos Cruz-Diez: Chromosaturation

It was back in the 1950's when Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez became influenced by the emerging Kinetic Art movement. Unlike his fellow kinetic artists, Carlos wasn't focused on creating three-dimensional moving forms, instead he focused on color as the medium and the viewer's perception as the movement. In his on going series titled "Chromosaturation" the viewer is placed in a fully colored room filled with a saturated color. This leads to a type of sensory depravation where the viewer can then feel the vibrations and wavelengths of the color, changing their perception of space, surface, and appearance.
