Carlos Cruz-Diez

In 1959, as he worked on the model for the symphonic orchestra of New York, Cruz-Diez observed how the red colour reflected onto the white surface. The phenomenon fascinated him, leading him to undertake an experiment with cardboard strips: and thus, the physochromies were born. The present work is a historical representation of Cruz-Diez’s revolutionary artistic technique and dates back to a turning point in the artist’s career.
