The Fascinating Neuroscience Of Color

 

THIS SEEMINGLY SIMPLE AREA OF STUDY OFFERS INSIGHTS INTO ALL SORTS OF BEHAVIOR–FROM ATTENTION TO DECISION-MAKING.

“Neuroscientist Bevil Conway thinks about color for a living. An artist since youth, Conway now spends much of his time studying vision and perception at Wellesley College and Harvard Medical School. His science remains strongly linked to art–in 2004 he and Margaret Livingstonefamously reported that Rembrandt may have suffered from flawed vision–and in recent years Conway has focused his research almost entirely on the neural machinery behind color.

“I think it’s a very powerful system,” he tells Co.Design, “and it’s completely underexploited.”

Conway’s research into the brain’s color systems has clear value for designers and artists like himself. It stands to reason, after all, that someone who understands how the brain processes color will be able to present it to others in a more effective way. But the neuroscience of color carries larger implications for the rest of us. In fact, Conway thinks his insights into color processing may ultimately shed light on some fundamental questions about human cognition…….

Conway believes scientists can learn a lot from examining the strategies artists use to clarify color. “The best access we have of what color is and what it does to us is by studying the work of people who have studied it obsessively. Matisse is one of those people,” he says. “I think it’s extremely valuable, and there’s been very limited work treating that corpus as the sort of scientific evidence that it will turn out to be.”

Eyes Can Hear | design mind   Leave a comment

 

Jared Ficklin in this blog article states : ” Making sound visible is a hobby of mine. After years pursuing real-time sound visualization, I became intrigued by the idea of eliminating time and allowing listeners to take in an entire song as a single visual impression. The result reveals an unseen beauty. “

using over 15,000 toy soldiers, montreal-based artist jean-pierre seguin amasses towering assemblages, ones that when viewed from a distance materialize as portraits and scenes representative of world war II. seguin studies his overall source image from a distance and colorizes each small plastic soldier in a varying color. as the viewer moves around the image, the perception of the portrait changes; the spectator becomes a kind of zoom lens, changing in focal length to produce effects of nearness and distance. at close range, we see an army of thousands of soldiers, while from a distance, we see ‘general eisenhower’, ‘lieutenant kennedy’ and an army nurse, each in their own way, a tribute to veterans. seguin’s work will be presented in march 2014 at ok harris gallery, new york.

These animals unbelievably made from tissue paper are so fun   Leave a comment

“In what might be the most creative use of tissue ever, Fuyu Arai created this wonderful stop motion animation video for Nepia, a Japanese tissue paper company. It shows different animals like birds, dogs, kangaroos, frogs, etc. being formed through just tissue paper. The animation is so fluid that you almost believe that these tissue animals are alive.

Here’s the full video. The making of video that shows how all of this was done is below it.”

 

These animals unbelievably made from tissue paper are so fun.
