Tattfoo Tan: Nature Matching System
New York-based artist Tattfoo Tan’s Nature Matching System associates individual colours with the fruits or vegetables from which they are derived in an effort to remind viewers of the benefits of these foods.
Working with produce purchased at the Union Square Greenmarket, Tan photographed each item and used Photoshop to pick a key colour from each image. The resulting colour-coded artwork has previously been installed at Manhattan’s Port Authority Bus Terminal, as well as under Manhattan Bridge, and could soon be used in the playground of a Brooklyn school.
Tan’s method of working aims to break down the barriers between life and art, using colour as an informative tool.
