Carlos Cruz Diez's Rainbow Art Installations

Hazel Cills
Artist Carlos Cruz Diez has been exploring the kinetic movement of color since the 1960s in his expansive and inventive installations, which you can visit now at the Musée en Herbe in Paris and the Museo Universitario Arte in Mexico. The installation features different chambers of lights for participants to walk through, transforming the appearance of skin and clothing, and tricking the viewers' retinas as they move from color to color. If, like us, you can't make it to the installations, check out some photos of the spaces below and pretend that you're there being absorbed by a rainbow.
