Color Me Idiom

December, 2014

"Artistic interpretation of color is entirely subjective. Crudely it is based on cultural, spiritual, or even religious beliefs. But in actuality our response to color is a subconscious reflection of life experiences and desires."

—Color the Narrative, by Chris Laverty


This project examines color and why directors and designers put certain costumes on certain characters at certain times. I then used this information to play with color, and how it changes depending on the fabric, which also contributes to how the color is interpreted.
