Color Mythology: stop action animation, paint on a single canvas, 2'27"

 

This animation is made at Children's Museum of the Arts. It is a collaboration project with vistors of the museum inspired by images, writings and marks they made responding to a color.

Throughout the exhibition period, each week I started out with a full tone of a single color on my canvas along side the same color drawing paper was set up for participants.

As participants responded to the color through their marks, I continually painted from the collected drawings on top of the same single chromatically painted canvas while photographing its stages.

Studies confirm that colors are real and not subjective, however their interpretations are ever changing and varied among cultures.

In this project I am interested in the collective psyche of colors. I aim to find a new mythology, new interpretations of colors.
