Chromosaturations are artificial environments consisting of three chambers—one red, one green, and one blue—that immerse the visitor in a total monochromatic situation. This experience triggers disturbances on the retina, which is accustomed to being exposed to a broad range of colors simultaneously.
Chromosaturations can act as detonators that trigger the viewer’s idea of color while generating a physical, material situation taking place in space, with no past or present, no help from form and devoid of support, unencumbered by cultural conventions.
