CMYG by Northern Ontario Society of Architects (NOSA)

CMYG is an exploration in additive and subtractive colour theory; more simply stated as the interaction between coloured light and pigment. The use of mono-frequency cyan light and intermittent white light alters your ability to read the colours of an oversized CMYG halftone screen across the surface of the installation. Under mono-frequency conditions everything appears as either cyan or grey tones. With the addition of white light, the true colour of the halftone screen becomes visible.

The project was installed in a narrow interior alley adjacent to the primary music venue for Up Here, an annual urban art and music festival held in downtown Sudbury, ON in August 2017. A collection of 50 parallelepiped boxes, painted with a series of halftone screens, form a winding line of benches and niches for visitors to sit, rest and people watch. The boxes, repurposed from a previous NOSA installation titled Archipelago, were designed with the specific intention that they could and would be reconfigured into a series of unique installations.

CMYG is the third collaboration between members of NOSA and carpenters at Vision Build Carpentry & Contracting. Our design process is highly collaborative: we bring models, trace paper and sketchbooks to a café or pub and develop the design concept in a discursive and iterative process. This year, the design team included architects, intern architects, academics and students from the McEwen School of Architecture in Sudbury. 
 
Project collaborators: Amber Baechler, Mark Baechler, Jordan Chappell, Amber Salach, Matthew Schultze, Ted Wilson, Breana Chabot, Vennice De Guzman, Sahana Dharmaraj, Sarah Fox, Adrian Hutchinson, Harrison Lane, Braeden Martel and Derrick Pilon.visible.
