Painting equipment and pigments have a long history. The participatory installation ‘farbenfroh’ wants to translate color theory with form and earth pigments. ‘farbenfroh’ painting equipment integrates watercolors into mobile objects as a transforming element for creative play and artistic work.
It is a matter of communicating science and art where eyes and touch understand everything. ‘farbenfroh’ welcomes children and adults alike.
