Your Colour Perception is artist Liz West’s largest site-specific installation to date, incorporating all 5,000 square feet of Castlefield Gallery’s New Art Spaces Federation House in Manchester.

The new work reacts to the architectural space using colour and light to create vast immersive installation art. Using the gallery as a laboratory West also tested the influence and perception of luminous colour in a certain area and on visitors experiencing it.

Transforming Federation House into a sensory, visceral experience by overloading it with artificial chromatic light, West is interested in the psychological, physical, emotional and spiritual responses visitors experience during their encounter.
