Join us for our next group discussion. The topic will be Carsten Nicolai’s new installation unicolor, so please make sure you have had a chance to see the work before the event.
An extension of his fascination with the boundaries between audio and visual art forms, Carsten Nicolai’s new work will stretch panoramic wavelengths of blue, red, green and grey to infinity, confronting the viewer with a visceral expanse of colour and sound to test the limits of perception.
Developing Nicolai’s previous projects univrs/uniscope version (2010) and unidisplay (2012), unicolour will unfold against a mirrored wall to give the impression of infinity, drawing inspiration from a huge range of influences from Goethe’s Theory Of Colour to the work of artists Josef Albers and Johannes Itten.
unicolour will also mark a year of site-specific installations at Brewer Street Car Park, and bring Nicolai back into contact with long time collaborator Ryoji Ikeda, whose installation supersymmetry attracted over 15,000 visitors last month. Influenced in equal measure by data, mathematic codes and random or self-organising structures, the pair have spent the last fifteen years researching the potential of digital technologies in audio-visual art.

Location: The Drawing Room, The RSA, 8 John Adam Street, London WC2N 6EZ
