The Target City Lights are an artful gift to the city of Minneapolis and should be thought of as a canvas, rather than a billboard. The lights are an opportunity to connect with the community on a nightly basis and leave a positive impact. Colloid is one of the five commissioned works for the Artist Series project, which its concept was born after the lakes of Minnesota. Colloid was screened in a screen that the glass outlined volume is 26x77x45 feet and a shimmer that contains 700,000 LED lights.
NOHlab created this motion painting artwork thinking of the various states of water such as; molecule, crystal, liquid, solid and gaseous… Colloid plays with water forms that are in a non-solvent environment. İstanbul based studio NOHlab tried to process the visual richness of the city, which is surrounded by water and where the four seasons can be lived.
