Creating and Copying Color

Exhibit by Posner Center intern, Hannah Gilchrist
Spring 2011

Most of the color that permeates our lives is reproduced. Pigments, dyes and light have been manipulated to create color on originally colorless surfaces. A more thorough technology allows more precise color identification, color order systems developed along with color reproduction technologies. This exhibit explored the basic principles, and the practical nature of several color reproduction technologies.
