Conceived by emmanuelle moureaux for the shinjuki creators festa 2013, ’100 colors’ – whose title indicates the number of hues the designer has integrated into the work – features more than 840 sheets of paper that are suspended from the ceiling, creating a volume of rainbow colors that float in the air.  She has chosen the 100 colors from inventory of takeo, a japanese paper manufacturer whose product line is available in thousands of types and textures, in an extensive range of hues. the vibrant installation encourages visitors to engage with it from various angles. Bean bags are placed under neath the spectrum of color inviting one to sit down and look at it from a different perspective, while 100 round circles placed on the wall summon the public to place a sticker around their favorite , transforming the rear of the space into a completely separate work of art, that also acts as a trend indicator of what guests prefer.
