Rhode Island-based design collective Pneuhaus created small inflatable bubbles that place visitors in the ever-changing environment of the RGB color spectrum. As if inhabiting pixels within a digital screen, people can observe the interaction between light and differently colored structures to understand the RGB color system. The pod, entitled RGBubble, was installed on the Brown University campus as part of A Better World by Design annual conference in Rhode Island. Hit the jump for more details.
Considering we only experience the real values of the color spectrum through our digital screens, we tend to miss the nuances and science of pixel-based software. By placing visitors inside the pixel, the team has provided an opportunity to understand light interactions in everyday life. The installations use space, color and light to invite people in, simultaneously creating various spaces to relax and exchange ideas.
The smaller bubbles, located on Brown’s campus, bring the experience of seeing colors to the extreme-after staring at blue parts of the structures, visitors will see more yellows. This focus on afterimage has played a pivotal role in the installation, reminding people of the way we experience color. The design was recently recognized at the 2015 Core77 Design Awards.
