“The gateway to an entire way of thinking. . . .It will blow your mind.”—Liz Stinson, Wired
The Interaction of Color App for iPad has captured the attention of artists, designers, and color geeks of all sorts in the two shorts weeks since its launch. Twitter has gotten much more colorful as early adopters tweet their original color studies directly from the app. Now users can share their color studies on Facebook and Pinterest as well.
To share your color studies on Facebook, post them to the timeline of the Interaction of Color Facebook page.
To share your color studies on Pinterest, follow the Yale Press’s Interaction of Color board for an invitation to join the group.
With the interactive capabilities of the app, Albers’s Interaction of Color is “fundamentally at home in the [digital] medium” according to the reviewers at Hyperallergic. The challenge of selecting the right colors from within a color family to create specific color relationships is an essential aspect of Albers’s lessons. Users sharing their solutions to the color challenges Albers posed will add to the collective understanding of color around the world.
Let’s get posting!
“A modernized, interactive presentation of Albers’s teachings. With fingers instead of paintbrushes and a touch screen instead of paper, users can move and manipulate over 125 color plates in 60 interactive studies. Concepts like color relativity and vibrating boundaries come to life. . . . This new and different iteration of [Albers’s] theories adds dimension and interactivity for the digital age, sparking just the kind of discoveries that fueled his life’s work.”—FastCompany.com
