Deceiving color

August 14, 2018

Albers6

Hindu 6 illustrates the concept of middle color to show that color performs simultaneous functions. Design by Meredith Eliassen, 2018.

Albers7

Ancient Egyptian 7 illustrates the concept of the subtraction of color to show that color can perform many roles. Design by Meredith Eliassen, 2018.

Albers8

Ancient Roman 8 illustrates after-image color deception. The human retina receives three primary colors (red, yellow, or blue); by staring at the red, it becomes fatigued and sensitive to red sections so that a subsequent sudden shift of focus to white will cause the mine to perceive red’s complimentary color. Design by Meredith Eliassen, 2018.
