The Slow Colour Project

The Slow Colour Project experiments with the relationship between colour and smell. Working with the ongoing Folds to Infinity Collection, the work invites the public to participate in a collective dyeing of the textile with spices: a synthesthetically-inflected experience of taking and making collective time.


Erin Manning is an artist and a philosopher. She directs the SenseLab at Concordia, a laboratory for thought in motion. Her current art practice is centred on large-scale participatory installations that facilitate emergent collectivities. Publications include Always More Than One: Individuation’s Dance (Duke UP, 2013).
