Color Match

This artist's edition by Simon Patterson accompanies the French version of a sound work of the same name.

Le match des couleurs, is the result of football matches announced by the sports journalist Eugène Saccomano on Europe 1, between teams that competed against each other through the colour spectrum (reference to HTML internet colours). The artist produced a multiple, consisting of a blank notebook and a CD-rom containing the sound piece.

The first version of the work in English, Color Match (1997), was based on Pantone colours and comments by Tim Gudgin of the BBC. Simon Patterson also produced a version for the Tate Modern website in London.
