COLORIS – Colors art installation in CityLife

CityLife park came to life over several years. Step by step, its aspect and character changed until it reached that state of perfection it shows today. I consider this space more than a simple park, I think this could be the evolution of the 90s green areas we are used to. That’s because of the multiple functions it serves: from the sustainable zero-impact nursery to its very cool meeting point for a pre-dinner drink. One of the latest adornments this park has gained is one the most beautiful permanent sculptures of Milan: COLORIS. 

COLORIS is a spectacular art installation, and as suggested by the very evocative and descriptive name, is a very colorful spot right in the middle of the grass. I felt like a bee the first time I saw it, so attracted by those brilliant colors, that were so visible and so appealing! Once there, I started wandering around the very high poles that make up that installation.

I was just in the middle of the installation when I heard a man saying to his child “Australia and new Zeland”… WHAT?? And I finally realized that the poles were growing from a big world map drowned on the ground! Amazing, I was standing right on Canada! 

That’s how I perceived innovation: this spot’s great feature! I was touching it, staying into it and watching it from very close-up: living it a little bit more than I ever had with any other artwork.
