True Colours: Explorations in art, design and research

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


It is always an interesting question: do you see colour the same way that I see colour? As my initial training was as an artist, it is possible that I approach colour very differently from someone with a scientific background. But do all artists or all scientists see the same, how do specialists in each discipline see colour? Does a chemist see colour differently from a physicist and do they see colour differently from a neurologist? Does a painter see colour differently from a graphic designer or an advertising art director? How much does our training contribute to our view of colour and do our professional silos prevent us from seeing the world as others do? As someone whose practice crosses art, design and strays into science, I am always intrigued to know how other people's training and professions shape the way they see the world.
