Chuang Chih-Wei, “Rainbow in the Darkness” Town Installations

5/25(Sat) 10:00〜5/26(Sun) 18:00
Roppongi Hills North Tower
[Participation fee]
Chuang’s “Rainbow in the Darkness” is an artwork that only sees completion through the participation of the audience. The surfaces of the large glass cubes are covered with black paint, which people are welcome to graffiti and inscribe messages by scraping. At night, these inscriptions shine as the LEDs within the box emit bright rainbow colored light.
