    Watching this to avoid doing homework and one of my assignments I am avoiding is to read an excerpt of Coates. Is this coincidence a sign?

    6:15 using color and form to think about complex social and political issues…? I don't get that xD
    I mean… how? Could you please elaborate on that? I'd be happy 🙂

    Wish my computer screen had enough colors to make out his color demo.

    You know what the problem is for me? His explanation sounds more like a collection of smart sounding words and phrases which don't make any sense together. I'm confused. Like if he himself didn't know why but was asked and had to explain.

    I wish he made animations of his work, it’s so dynamic

    Hey this applies to dressing outfits-mix matching clothes and cooking. Salads and tomatoes on burgers. Pancake stacks! Yum

    As a devoted Vlogbrothers etc viewer, I only just subscribed to the Art Assignment. If this is what the assignments are like, boy have I been missing out.
    This is so cool!

    I love videos like this that enable me to think more complexly about the world around me. This channel is amazing, thanks for helping me learn and understand better!

    That's an interesting way to look at color, as time periods. In som way then the painting has a totally different meaning to Odita than it would to say someone like me who sees color as a way to express feelings. I guess it can be seen from both viewpoints. When I use to take AP art I'd always find some weird delight in looking at my teachers confused face when I showed up to class with a new painting where I had no boundary as to what colors I was using.

    Loved this. Honestly it's something that we take for granted – our perception of color and it's shades and hues. We assume because it has the name "blue" that it then is ONLY blue but when you compare generic "blue" things you find that things aren't as they appear. This whole video brought to mind Kazimir Malevich and his Black Square or the White on White. Needless to say, I loved this video and hope its discourse will help to broaden perspectives.

    The start of the animation reminded me of the start of the song Quiet from Matilda the Musical! It's a concept that always blows my mind so I love that this assignment realises that. Will be posting in AA:EC soon! (Also I think this is a great assignment to start with – to me it doesn't seem as intimidating to attempt as some of the others. Not that I don't think they're all amazing, it's just that I wouldn't know where to start with some! I think this will get me into it nicely!!)

    This is a great assignment. The contingency of color has long been a fascination of mine in music, so it's great to see that performed by Odili Donald Odita. Thanks for introducing me to the work and thought of this insightful artist!

    Will the official Art Assignment Responses Tumblr go on reposting the responses from everyone, now that the Art Assignments are over? I didn't see a new Response – Repost for months now.

    Very cool, one of the clearest and most succinct explanations of why colour is downright scary to deal with. That sneaky mutability! What's the light source, the time of day, the materials touching it, near it, the light that bounces off other materials onto it… even if you cast a bit of shade onto the object it can really change up, and the slightest tweaks can render something from lovely to unsettling…. ok, apparently I never realized just how much anxiety I had around colour. 😉 Needless to say, I love this assignment, very insightful, really opens up awareness, and thought provoking. Sad this is the last one (for now…), but a great one to end on. I'd say GOLD STAR! but now I'm wondering just what gold looks like to me and versus how it looks to others… 🙂

    Professor Beau Lotto – if you want to know about colour perception he's one of the leading authorities.

    Is the red you see, the same as the red I see? He's designed an experiment to test this and the answer seems to be a loud and clear No.

    Your perception of colour is determined by physical context, socialization, and even language – from his experiments it seems that if you don't have a word for a colour then you can't see that colour.

    Here are some optical illusions with colour. If you've not seen them before you probably won't believe them

    The animation reminded me of how Hank is seen as the blonde one when he's with john even though his hair is brown. I can't wait to to this for extra credit btw!
