Thank you to all of you who supported last year’s initial implementation of A Color Box. The intention remains the same: to inspire people with color relationships.
I need your support again.
The immersive room, full of color that responds to human behavior, serves to train the eyes, teach color relationships, and make art fun. Users find that after experiencing a color box, they see greater ranges of color in their daily life and in art. Artists understand how to use color more powerfully to create vivid and brilliant artwork. And art appreciators can better appreciate how color is used in relationships.
This year at SOURCE, A Color Box will be:
(1). Much brighter. Last year it was illuminated with one projector at 2000 lumins. This year, will be two projectors hit from two sides
(2). The structure will be stronger and more svelt. Last year, built with 2 x 2’s, this year metal tubing (EMT) for soft round edges and wrapped in lycra.
(3). The content will be rounder (and better). Rounder and even more engaging. If you checked out my art this year for the 2010 calendar you noted that I’ve broken out of the square and become obsessed with circles. An example of the circle content is here. I’m working in processing, a language that enables far great color interaction.
(4). More interactive. It will be interactive as last year, however the interaction tool will be multiplied- instead of one “magic wand”, the infrared LED used as a giant screen mouse will be stuffed animals with the lights built into their third eye. This will allow multiple people to engage at one time.
Following last year’s festival where A Color Box debuted, I visited Amsterdam and showed my new series of color artwork Vision Thru Color. I also began giving presentations on color relationships at Franklins and Elephant Eggs on Maui (speaker engagements). I’ll be posting more video of my lectures on color soon.
I’m commited to showing color as way to open minds and inspire people in their lives. I believe that understanding and appreciating color relationships can empower people.
If you have the ability and desire, please donate to A color box 2.0.
