We are here to inspire, educate and beautify. In short, we evangelize color relationships. Something extraordinary happens when colors come together, when they relate to eachother. For better or worse, in harmony or ecstatic clash, colors in relationship are often misunderstood and more often under-leveraged. Get to know the power of color relationships.
Colors change dependent on their context. Or at least, our visual perception that generates color in our experience, sees color differently in different context. When we challenge and expand this process of visual perception, we improve it, and sometimes, we transform ourselves.
We seek to create that “pop” of recognition when a color reveals itself as more than it appears.
In the 1920’s, Josef Albers created a series of paintings homaging the square. In most cases, the colors were made from arrays made from two parent colors, thus creating halations.
In the 1950’s Dick Nelson went to Yale and took a course with Josef Albers. Fifty years later, after learning to work with and mix colors on a computer, he had an epiphany while flying from Maui to Oahu to create a matrix of color from four parents.
Inspired by the lessons, inspired by the colors themselves and inspired by the notion that color is relative, I took the matrix and made the background interactive.
The matrix inherently creates harmony because every color is aware of every other color in the matrix.
