Emmanuelle Moureaux Creates A Rainbow Forest Of Numbers

As a part of their 10th anniversary celebration, the National Art Center of Tokyo commissioned Tokyo-based French architect and artist Emmanuelle Moureaux to construct a special installation.

Titled ‘Forest of Numbers’, the exhibition symbolises the following ten years, visualizing the decade of the future. Used without any partition walls, the 2000 square meter White Cube exhibition room is filled with 100 colors. More than 60,000 pieces of suspended numeral figures from 0 to 9 were regularly aligned in three dimensional grids. One section creates a path that is cut through the installation, inviting visitors to walk inside the colorful forest. The numbers are also divided into 100 shades to align with Moureaux’s 100 Colors installation series, which she has installed around the world since 2013. Inside the 3-dimensional work, two girls and one cat were lost inside, added playfulness to the installation.
