CHROMAtex.me is the new installation from SOFTlab installed at the bridgegallery in manhattan’s lower east side, a temporary installation which topology consists of 5,000 colourful laser cut panels which are held together by clips.

This project was fully founded by the on-line community by creating an interesting project at the kickstarter website were they offered a small ownership of the installation by engraving your name or a message in exchange of a small donation so when the installation is eventually disassembled, they will be shipped to their respective donor’s home. You can check out a map of some of the contributors to this project here.

The digital part of this project was mainly done in grasshopper if your interested in taking a look at the definition you can download it here.
