Liebe Freunde des Dresdener Farbenforums,

am 10. und 11. Mai findet wieder ein Dresdner Farbenforum statt - diesmal in den neuen Räumen der Sammlung Farbenlehre. Harald Küppers hat seine wissenschaftliche, künstlerische und didaktische Sammlung der TU Dresden überlassen. Wir nehmen dieses zum Anlass für das diesjährige Thema Die Logik der Farbe — Farbe in den Medien. Das Symposium wird sich mit der Rolle der Farbe in den Medien von ihrer Geschichte bis hin zu neuen Perspektiven in Print, Fotografie und Film widmen. Besonders wollen wir natürlich auch die Rolle Harald Küppers’ in der Entwicklung des Farbdrucks und den Einfluß seiner Farbenlehre in den Medien und der Ausbildung im Design würdigen. Harald Küppers wird selbst anwesend sein. Wir freuen uns auf Ihr Kommen.

Colour test

I have a proposal for to put on the website of SG ECD and/or spread via email to the members.

As a follow-up of my colour test as I have presented in Lisbon, I am currently conducting research into the relation between the choices from the colour test and food/drink preferences. Included are also the interiors of restaurants and the settings and materials on the table.

I need at least 200 respondents with the current status of only 44 who completed the questionnaire. I thought, perhaps if this could be spread among the members, I could reach my target.

Here is the link:

Thanks for looking into this.

From David Briggs: Colour Quiz 

Munsell 2018 follow-up: The Art, Science and History of Colour Quiz

Dear fellow Munsell 2018 participants,

I hope that some of you recall my presentation "Where is Colour Education Now?" at Munsell 2018 and might be interested in this small attempt to address the sins of commission and omission of colour education from my perspective.

"The Art, Science and History of Colour Quiz" is a series of packages of multiple choice questions with feedback structured to cumulatively address common misconceptions and knowledge gaps about colour.

I'd of course greatly appreciate your thoughts on the quiz and ways it might be improved. You'll need to complete the quiz (anonymously) to see the feedback content. The quiz links are listed here.

If you find the quiz useful, please feel free to distribute it or to use individual questions from it in any way you wish.
