Chroma Cluster

An online game
Rearrange the random color fields into clusters by swapping them. The aim is to group all the colors into clusters, eliminating any unconnected walls and isolated single cells. White walls divide dissimilar neighbors, and conversely, the walls are absent between the neighbors that are similar.
(Chromapost byproduct)


"No Walls" view of the solution

Chromapost Outgrowths Booklet

Chromapost Outgrowths is a series of artworks where the colors contained in the online Chromapost diary are translated using different media. Since the original color is basically computer data, every manifestation of the color is a translation, and will appear differently in each medium through which it has been manifested. The outgrowths are grouped into three sets of artworks depending on the approach used for color translation.
