Our experience shifts when we look out through a frame, such as these pair of rose colored glasses. We choose our own boundaries of how we look at the world. The concept of La Vie En Rose is a tribute to perspectives.
This installation invites the public to interact and become part of a new reality.This sculpture has a performance quality that crosses multi-cultural boarders. The public takes on poses through selfie shots and video as they interact with the frames. The underlying concept of the rose colored glasses was grasped on a visual and physical level as participants lined up to take a moment to document their own performance.
The interaction showed bursts of play, joy, looking through the frame, cleaning our lenses, climbing a larger than life understood object, being a central core for family value and inspiration, and a common ground for friendship. A frame allows us to ponder how we see things around us. Eye glasses are about focus things inside the frame are sharp like a landscape filled with colorful tulips, or a historical royal palace.
In Keukenhof, 1 million visitors joined in during a 2 month period.
At Paleis Soestdijk, this installation was placed with an eye on the future for the historical palace. These frames added the element of challenging the public to predict its exciting future.
The installation, La Vie En Rose, is available for international installations. Please contact Daniella, and let’s make it happen!
“La Vie En Rose. It is the French way of saying, ‘I am looking at the world through rose-colored glasses.”
