Emmanuelle Moureaux：As the world’s first museum bringing Art and Design together, Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art & Design has opened in August, 2017 in Toyama, Japan. The opening ceremony exhibition Part 2 “Art and Design, dialogue with materials” was held to introduce different characteristics and attractiveness of materials such as wood, metal and new forefront materials, shaped into various forms by artists and designers. In this exhibition, Emmanuelle has worked with paper to show the beauty and possibility of paper as a material.
The sensory element “color”, and the mathematical element “time”. The installation “COLOR OF TIME” superimposes these two elements, to visualize and make one feel the flow of time. The first day of the exhibition, the sky of Toyama City on November 16, 2017. From the sunrise at 06:30, the color transitions through a total of 799 minutes, passing 18:11 astronomical twilight to 19:49, when the color disappears into blackness. This flow of time is perceived through the transitional journey through 100 shades of colors.
The space was composed by total of approximately 120,000 numeral figures from “0” to “9”, and a symbol “:”, regularly aligned in three dimensional grids. Although these figures seem like a dense volume, it expresses the flow of “time” in every minute. The installation is composed of 100 layers, and in each layer the time flows from left to right, then into the depth of the installation. The top front layer starts from sunrise at 06:30 with pale colors, then their colors gradually become darker as time flows. At the end, the installation is completed by the time of darkness, 19:49, in a color that is first time for Emmanuelle’s works to use in her installations – black.

中间有一条贯穿艺术装置的小路，Shiro Kuramata设计了作品“布兰奇小姐”，“布兰奇小姐”由富山县艺术设计博物馆副馆长、本次展览的策展人放置，中间的这条轴线表达了设计师Emmanuelle对Shiro Kuramata深深的敬意和钦佩之情。穿过隧道，头顶天空的颜色呈现出从浅到深的美丽渐变，随着时间的推移而流动着。人们穿越这个五彩缤纷的时间流，可以感受到周身氛围的微妙变化。
Lead by the path that is cut through the installation in the middle, “Miss Blanche” designed by Shiro Kuramata is positioned. “Miss Blanche” is placed by the deputy director of Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art & Design, who is also curator of the exhibition, to create the axis to express a deep respect and admiration from Emmanuelle to Shiro Kuramata. Through the tunnel, the sky is tinted with a beautiful gradation changing from pale to deep colors, flowing from time to time. The installation makes one feel the subtle changes in atmosphere through the whole body, by travelling the colorful flow of time.
