Colour Decoded

PRESENTED ON JAN 20, 2015
IN TORONTO @ VOL 32

A surgery removing a tumour along with half of Carly Blackman's thyroid in 2012 was the beginning of a 2-year journey of researching, writing and designing her book called Colour Decoded. This is a book written for artists and designers explaining the science behind colour in a way a "right-brained" individual can easily understand. Furthermore it discusses how colour has a massive impactive on our hormones, body and behaviours. Her exploration with colour tries to bridge the two worlds of Art and Science, which have been isolated from each other in our present day education system.

Colour at the Ontario Science Centre

BY ELGIN CLECKLEY
@ VOL 32 ON MAY 06, 2014

Colour at the Ontario Science is an integral part of our vision since our opening in 1969.  From the three hues in our iconic logo, to use in defining architecture and way finding, colour assists 1 million visitors a year setting the stage for interactives and copy panels in our halls.  Colour changes in response to our needs, but also helps define interactions, resolve questions and enhance the visitor experience. Elgin Cleckley, Senior Exhibit Designer of the Science Centre, takes a quick tour of the Ontario Science Centre discussing the colour histories of the past and how they have evolved into the colour language we use today.

What Colour is Your Blood?

BY DAVE MAZIERSKI
@ VOL 32 ON JAN 20, 2015

Colour plays many roles in medical and anatomical illustration: representational and symbolic, qualitative and quantitative, diagnostic and aesthetic. While some colour choices may seem obvious (such as red to represent blood), there is much more history, nuance and interpretation than meets the eye. Amongst other topics, Dave Mazierski presented the five different colours of blood, the wheel of urine, and the truth behind the real and imagined colours of our inner and outer anatomy.
