Color made the news last week with a furious debate about the color of a dress. I didn't get it at first. Why all the fuss?
Now I think it's one of the most fascinating topics in the world of color. Why? Because - it's all about lighting - and this is my year to explore color and light!
I originally planned to write this newsletter about the difficulty in describing and naming colors but that idea got sidelined by The Dress. The internet firestorm proved that differences in color perception are much greater than anyone thought possible.
If there is such a huge discrepancy in how we see colors, how can we possibly agree on color names that make sense for everyone?
Horrors! The world of color just shifted under my feet.
