Installation for the world-famous Japanese masking tape brand “mt”, for the memorable 10th mt FACTORY TOUR. The exhibition, held once a year at the mt factory, shows the infinite possibilities of the mt’s masking tape, made of traditional Japanese paper washi.
For the installation, Emmanuelle decided to use the most familiar masking tape with a width of 15 mm. The tape was especially created for the installation in Emmanuelle’s unique 100 different shades of colors. The installation was composed of 6000 thin lines of masking tapes, regularly layered vertically and diagonally, creating a rhythmical immersive colorful space. Visitors can walk through a tunnel cut out of the installation, experiencing the 100 colors gradation and its overlapping effects. The colors and lines overlap and change depending on the viewing angle, creating a beautiful rainbow moire that creates various expressions.
Walking through this immersive one hundred colors path, which was made up of a total of 28 km length masking tape, people forgot time and enjoyed colors with their entire body.
