This installation is based on research into the influence of online colours.
We are increasingly viewing artworks via the internet. This has a big influence on the colours that we imagine when we think of a painting.
But how do those online copies relate to the real works of art?
Studio RENS translated the research results into a wallpaper installation, it shows the images that Google feeds you when you search for Portrait of a man in a red turban by Jan van Eyck.
