Over 100,000 paper number cut-outs make up artist Emmanuelle Moureaux’s rainbow-colored installation called the "Colour of Time," which was on show at the Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art and Design in Toyama, Japan. The installation is designed to visualize the passing of time and is part of a series of exhibitions that aim to explore the different functions of materials.

The museum explains that “the installation superimposes these two elements to visualize and make one feel the flow of time.”

“Colour of Time” is made up of 120,000 paper numerical figures from zero to nine, as well as a colon symbol, all of which are aligned to form a three-dimensional grid composed of 100 layers.

Each row of numbers denotes a time of day, from sunrise at 6:30 a.m. to sunset at 7:49 p.m. Different colors also represent different times of day, resulting in the installation becoming gradually darker to illustrate the transition from day to night.

If you want to check it out, then bad news: the installation was only on show between November 16. 2017 and January 8, 2018.

Head over to Dezeen for more pictures and further information on the inspiration behind the installation.
