Reddish-Green and Yellowish-Blue are known as impossible colors or forbidden colors. Set side by side, it is said that the human eye could not see them, that their light frequencies would cancel each other, rendering them invisible. Researchers say that they can be seen if one looks ‘the right way’.

The boundaries between colors are akin to those between logic and dreams, they too can produce an impossible meaning if we mix them.

A four-channel video installation. Each monitor is set side by side and each plays a discrete file . Each file is a the same lenghth. Synchronisation is necessary. All four monitors have sound, which are synched to play at different time.
