Explore and characterize preferred LED spectra

Markus Reisinger (Switzerland)

  • Organization: reisingerstudios
  • Email: lambertrozema@xs4all.nl

Today LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) with a wide range of spectral characteristics are available. Especially from fashion and food applications it is evident that achromatic LED light sources with similar or even same designations render products differently. The workshop provides a live experience of different LED spectra. Besides observations of color appearance shifts the focus of this training session is to provide graphics to describe color characteristics. To do so the IES TM-30-2015 procedure is used. Objective of the workshop is to demonstrate, describe and discuss the distinct impact of LED spectra choice on visual appearance.

CEE: Colour Environment Experience

Annamaria di Cara (Australia)

  • Organization: Disegno Colori Studio DC
  • Email: disegnocolori@gmail.com

The daily experience of spatial environments involves a series of moments between human beings and environmental stimuli. Whether static or in motion, through direct or indirect contact with each of the human senses, spatial stimuli impact on our experience of space. A context that is informed by the arrangement of form, void, light, texture and colour interact. Each of these elements combined has the potential to stimulate human comfort in order to support interactions between the individual, people and environment, that impact on the fulfillment of a variety of functions. During this interactive workshop, participants will explore human and environmental variables that impact on the experience of space. Through a process of discovery based on experience, you will articulate in both 2D and 3D representation, the relationships between colour, form, texture and light that may potentially influence the experience of human comfort within the context of spatial environment.

  • Materials needed: Drawing+cutting+glueing materials, computer, projector, whiteboard, markers and eraser, pin-up board.
  • Space and support required: Work tables with individual A3 size cutting mats or cutting mat surface that is large enough for use by two or 3 participants at the same time.

Colour perception: Isn't it an illusion?

K. Hilmi OR (Turkey)

  • Organization: Individual member of AIC
  • Email: hilmi.or@gmail.com

Visual perception and colour perception are functions of the brain via the photo receptors of the eye. There are a lot of controversies in both: Human visual perception and human colour vision. They will be described in a scientific way with visual illusions. Interactively experienced visual illusions will give the participants the experience of controversies in normal human colour perception. The scientific background will be discussed.

  • Materials needed: None
  • Space and support required: PROJECTOR, SCREEN, LAPTOP (POWERPOINT PRESENTATION)

Light painting

Maja Strgar Kurecic (Croatia)

  • Organization: University of Zagreb Faculty of Graphic Arts, Croatian Colour Society
  • Email: mstrgar@grf.hr

Light painting is a photographic technique, in which a long shutter speed is used along with moving light source. It is very creative technique that can be used in art photography, commercial photography and in stop- motion animation and video. There are several ways of painting with light: illuminating the object in total darkness, moving the light source directed towards the camera and moving the camera with a static light source. In this workshop the Light painting technique is analysed through numerous examples (theoretically and practically), and the ideas and tips are given for getting better photographs.

  • Materials needed: Participants should bring personal digital camera and tripod, camera flash, handheld light sources, empty colour bottles, scotchtape
  • Space and support required: Classroom with PC and projector
  • No. of participants: 6 – 12

The colour on the scene: let´s create self-characters

Pedro Felipe Pinho Souza and Milena Leite Paiva (Brazil)

  • Email: pedropinho88@gmail.com
  • COLOURS: Black, Blue
  • SIZES: XS,S,M,L,XL

Workshop of digital photographic creation focusing on the narrative construction of colors in the images produced by the participants. It is intended to approach the aesthetic and dramatic relationship between color and light in the imagery composition, exploring the plasticity and visuality of the elements that constitute the materiality of the scene, such as characters, scenarios, costumes and makeup, and their interaction with artificial lighting polychromatic. The workshop will begin with a theoretical and practical approach to color in moving image, presenting an analysis of films and various audiovisual works. After this time, each participant will compose a character from an individual self and their interaction with scenic elements provided by the speakers.

  • Materials needed: Participants: their cellphone, with camera.
  • Space and support required: Projector, large room with table and chairs.
  • No. of participants: 4 – 10

Local colour and sense of place

Lambert Rozema (Holland)

  • Organization: monartworks
  • Email: lambertrozema@xs4all.nl

Leading question: To what extent can local colours contribute to place making, inclusion and empowerment?
Our ‘sense of place’ or ‘sense of belonging’ is currently under scrutiny as globalisation, the omnipresence of brands and the ever increasing number of people on the move all have contributed to ‘placelessness’. (John Agnew 1987)
An appropriate role for a designer, therefore, could be that of a facilitator, leading members of a community to discover for themselves their local colours and so come to develop a sense of place, their own place. If the future health of the planet as a whole depends on biodiversity, it could be argued that the future health of humanity depends on cultural diversity. A distinctive local palette, which contributes to a strong sense of place, can engender a correspondingly strong sense of belonging for members of a community.’ (Janelle Cugley and Paul Green-Armytage 2000)
I would like to invite (colour) experts from a variety of disciplines to discuss the subject ‘colour and place making’ as it is a key factor of the AIC theme ‘colour and human comfort’. I hope to found new collaborations and use the output of the discussion for further/broader implementation in my PhD research on local colour and sense of place. I will hold a presentation on my work as an artist/researcher after which participants will be asked to put forward questions and ideas which hopefully will invite further discussion and idea generation.

Seeing colours in paintings: what can we learn from vision science

Sérgio Nascimento (1; Portugal), Anya Hurlbert (2; England)

  • Organization: (1) Centre of Physics, University of Minho, Portugal (2) Newcastle University, England, United Kingdom
  • Email: (1) smcn@fisica.uminho.pt (2) anya.hurlbert@newcastle.ac.uk

Vision scientists have always had much to learn from visual art. Understanding why artists deploy particular configurations of colour and form and how particular paintings elicit aesthetic and cognitive responses gives valuable insight into how human vision works. Recently, precise quantitative studies of colors in paintings have revealed regularities that may have implications for their perceived beauty. Empirical studies have also shown that the spectral and spatial properties of lighting on paintings affects their aesthetic and emotional impact. This workshop will bring together vision scientists and museum specialists to discuss these issues and how their knowledge may be used to improve the viewer's experience of art.

Paint the town: square by square

Carla Lobo

  • Organization: APC - Portuguese Colour Association
  • Email: carla.a.lobo@gmail.com

The usage of azulejo (glazed tiles) as colour/cladding in Portuguese Architecture is an historical and cultural legacy of unequivocal presence in the process of making the image of the city. “The azulejo, in Portugal, is a cultural fundamental expression, embodying not only a strict decoration but also mainly artistic transcendence. As an image support, continuously applied for centuries in architecture and cities' noble spaces.” (Paulo Henriques, former director of the Portuguese Tile´s Museum). As indelible tattoos that colour cities’ skins, tile surfaces are the paradigm of colour transformations due to light variation, creating surfaces in permanent mutation. This workshop is designed as a hands-on experience, where the participants will have the chance to try out the ceramic tiles painting process, and get their one tattoos.

  • Materials needed: Paints, Glazed Tiles, Unglazed Tiles, Brushes, Paper, cardboard, Containers, Liquid Glycerine, Tracing Paper, Sponges, Charcoal powder.
