Spectras by Chris Shen
Presented by zzz & curated by sketchedSPACE, Spectras is a series of artworks and installations by UK artist Chris Shen that present duality and transitions of choice categorised by the colours red and blue. Each screen-sized tile reflects on opposition within the cultural landscape, framing our sources of information and opinions. When the viewer’s position changes, each individual tile randomly flips between the solid colours red and blue. The size of each tile representing a common screen size (16:9) to present mass opinions and viewpoints of a given topic.
Chris’ selections of Red/Blue were chosen as generic representations of opposition that can exist within everyday society and across multiple cultures. There are many examples of these colours providing pivotal and trivial choices alike from drinks, sport teams and political biases.
