Extended Deadline and Upcoming International Colour Conferences

This just in from  Verena M. Schindler, Chair of the Study Group on Environmental Colour Design of the  AIC:

"We categorically denounce the absence of colour even if the house is in the midst of nature. There are not only the lush landscapes of spring and summer, but the snow-covered scenes of winter, which cry out for colour."
― Bruno Taut

AIC call for papers

Hello CRSC members and potential members
Please see below for details of the AIC 2012 Congress call for papers. The AIC Congress occurs once every 4 years, with themed MidTerm meetings each year in a different member country.

The CRSC hopes to add Canada to the list of 'Regular Members', that is national colour organizations belonging to AIC before this next Congress in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in July 2013. Membership from a wide range of disciplines will help us achieve this goal, so please join us in building this network of Canadian colour researchers.

Sally McKay at ‘No Format Gallery’ in London

Sally McKay is exhibiting at the No Format Gallery in Woolwich, London. Her exhibition is entitled ‘Multisensory Experience and Artistic Images of the Moving Human Figure’ and is a study of moving human figures as lines, colours and shadows. The exhibition is in conjunction with the writer Stephen Baycroft, who has written about Sally’s work as part of a larger curated project ‘On Sublimity and Synaesthesia’. McKay’s envisaging of her multisensory perceptions of moving human figures as lines, colours and shadows in her artworks relies both on visual memory-images abstracted from her visual sensations, and on body memory-images abstracted from muscular sensations of her body movements. McKay uses such body memory-images to coordinate her multisensory perceptual making of artworks during collaborative events where moving human figures may experience a loss both of personal subjectivity, and of the distinction of their bodies from the ‘living’ atmospheres of light and sound in which they are immersed. – Stephen Baycroft


Colour-blind artist hears colour

Fascinating project by artist Neil Harbisson: 2012 Ted talk

Artist Neil Harbisson was born completely color blind, but these days a device attached to his head turns color into audible frequencies. Instead of seeing a world in grayscale, Harbisson can hear a symphony of color -- and yes, even listen to faces and paintings.
Neil Harbisson's "eyeborg" allows him to hear colors, even those beyond the range of sight.
