SPECTRUM by Cosimo Scotucci a monument to diversity


Visible light seemed to be pure, colourless and indivisible, but after the 17th century when Isaac Newton dissembled it through a prism, we have discovered that it is made by an infinite array of beautiful colors.

So, is the Humankind! Every person is unique, every individual is a single shade in the full display of color that we call humanity. Is it possible to create an installation that celebrates people uniqueness while laying the foundation for an inclusive society of tomorrow?

New York City will be the stage of a massive urban-land-art event for which the scenography is already set in place. SPECTRUM, requires that each screen and billboard of Time Square displays a single monochrome color, creating an ever-changing composition, showcasing all the possible tones of light, celebrates diversity.

Visitors will be washed by strong colored lights that will change in time defining an evolutionary experience. Light, with its physical presence will be the medium of greater message, it is designed to be a place of contemplative thought, promoting plurality while reveling its true beauty.
