Object Description: Carlos Cruz-Diez began his "Physichromie" series in 1959 and continues it today. Its title is a combination of the words “physical” and “chromatic,” a reflection of Cruz-Diez’s lifelong ambition to create situations in which viewers could experience color not only visually, but also physically. According to the artist, “color is constantly in the making . . . it happens in time.” "Physichromie No. 394" is composed of parallel columns of plastic strips, whose colors are reflected and refracted through other translucent plastic strips, thereby generating colors and forms that change depending on the perspective of the moving viewer.
