For the third and final show of Color Rx: Humanoid, we decided to do something a little different. Something a little more experiential. And something a lot more tasty.
On February 18th, 2018, Vessel Gallery hosted a Late Night for Color Rx, and here's how it went:
Visitors walked in and encountered me, fully clad in a lab coat (thanks MCB Department!), sitting at a prescription counter reminiscent of pharmacy windows. Each person was asked to write down how they were feeling on an index card. I would then correlate their sentiment to a prescriptive color, and change the light color in the space to reflect their result.
With their prescription in hand, visitors could then approach the treats table and redeem their prescription for a correlated snack color (and another of their choosing, just for good measure):
Red/pink: flirty sangria
Orange: rejuvenating tea
Yellow: energizing lemonade
Green: pistachio cookie
Blue: refreshing mint
Purple: decadent chocolate
After visitors were treated and treated, they were free to roam about the space and soak in the light show, view the polaroid photo display of past visitors, and write down their colored thoughts in the journal by the static glass display.
All in all, the Late Night allowed for more mingling, discussing, and basking in color, light, and good vibes.
So thank you to everyone who rolled on through and here's hoping that you left with a colorful pick me up!
Special thanks to my helper for the night, Sofia, who probably said "Here's the sangria, it's flirty, it's fruity, it's sensual" a good 45 times over the course of the evening.
And, of course, a huge thanks to Essa Lucienne for hosting this three-run-show in her gorgeous exhibition space, assembling the magical hallway light fixtures, and for being an absolute visionary.
I'm over the moon that colors have made people as happy as they make me :)
