Description

Colour has been studied for centuries, but remains incompletely understood. Digital technology has recently sparked a burgeoning inter-disciplinary interest in colour. Graphic artists prefer to create their images on computers even though colours seen on display look different when printed; galleries now digitally archive valuable work. The fundamental problem that arises is that colour reproduction is not simply a matter of reproducing identical physical phenomenona, but is rather a matter of creating perceptual equivalencies. The fact that colour is a quality of perception rather than a "physical quality" brings up a host of interesting questions and makes it of common interest to both artists and scholars. This interdisciplinary volume - the ninth in the Vancouver Studies in Cognitive Science series - brings together chapters by psychologists, philosophers, computer scientists and artists to explore the nature of human colour perception, and hopes to further our understanding of colour by encouraging interdisciplinary interaction.show more
