Episode Four, Colour

“A colour has many faces.”

This is a quote or in a better way a chapter title of Josef Albers’ book, Interaction of colour.

We may consider these variety of faces based on the appearance of colour in different conditions, or based on different social contexts. Chemistry and physics of light play huge role on perceiving colour, and this part falls into the visual perception territory. At the same time, colours play role in the societies and carrying variety of understandings and meanings. We may call this part the social perception of colour.

Understanding and studying colour requires considering so many areas such as psychology, physiology and genetics, physics and chemistry, culture, symbolism and linguistics and even politics and economy. In this episode we are trying to track and cover functionality of colour. So, let’s listen to our guests, Audrey and Robin, about how we perceive and understand colour?
