Active Color Perception; name a color, blind the eye

September 5, 2023 @ 5:30 PM


We have boxes of brightly colored pencils, marking pens, hex codes, and seasonal fashions.  All of these give us access to color. But could it be that we are not seeing the whole picture in the color choices that are offered to us? The way many of us identify individual colors actually closes us off from the protean nature of color and from our abilities to interact with our color vision.  Color is not a thing; it is a relationship between. In this talk, artist Rosy Lamb shares her research into color as a responsive language we all can learn to speak by listening, and by attending to what our eyes see all around us.  Her reserach includes a prototype of a digital tool she is developing, which allows users to intuitively build relational colors using a similar methodology to pigment mixing.
