Color Room

'COLOR ROOM', Bennington College Commons, 1959. "The 'COLOR ROOM' dealt with color in space, and also with three-dimensional positive-negative space. It consisted of an over-life-size irregularly-faceted green and black object, and an equally irregularly-faceted orange space: the room (Paul Feeley's office) with its walls, floor, and sloping roof completely covered with orange paper. Once having entered, you were outside part of the sculpture, inside the rest. Together they united to form a non-decorative color-space in which different "compositions" could be created by moving through the work."
