The New Color

As an artist, designer, color mentor and color advocate, I am proposing to host an interdisciplinary Color Workshop to explore 21st Century Color, the re-mapped color field, where dots between disciplines are connected. As a component of light and a mental construct, color can no longer be dismissed as "merely decorative". This interactive workshop (a variation of the workshops I give to diverse professional and community audiences) is designed for Austin Design Week's timely "Open Doors" theme.

The workshop will explore creative ways to:

  • reimagine the role of color in the world
  • plug into our sensory perceptions
  • begin to crack the cultural color codes coursing through our lives every day.

Various visual aids will be integrated to prompt dynamic engagement with participants. No paint mixing is involved, as it is vital to realize that color is SO much more than paint.
