Israeli designer Itay Ohaly filled the walls of the Design Museum Holon with beautiful brightly-colored etchings.
Ohaly divided his work into two happenings, that took place in two different rooms. The first room was an installation, planned and curated by the artist himself. The imaginative artist carved the walls of that room, creating bright and funky etchings. These colorful doodles, surely reminding us those of a child’s, were later covered by black paint that filled the walls entirely. The role of the visitor was to scratch the black paint and discover the beautiful etchings beneath it. The second room, or active room, was a completely black room that hosted an interactive installation; with just a table and a chair in it, the viewers had the chance to experiment and create art themselves.
Colored Memories is not just an installation at a museum. It is a beautiful project that connects the artist, the work and the visitor in the most beautiful, creative and meaningful way.
