This book deals with David Sprigg’s monumental installation Stratachrome, a work that puts into perspective the principal factors that govern the way we interpret the colour green. Aside from its ecological connotation, green has become photogenic. The use of large green screens to create special effects for movies has made this colour a contemporary symbol of substitution. These days, green is also the colour of holograms and, at its most virtual, of night vision systems. Stratachrome, exhibited from September 3 to October 9, 2010, was produced in residence in the Galerie de l’UQAM space, which served as the artist’s laboratory throughout the summer. The catalogue includes an essay by the curator, Marie-Eve Beaupré, and numerous colour illustrations.
