In Living Colour

@ VOL 32 ON JAN 20, 2015

We are closed off from the world when we are in our own comfort zone/natural environment; thus, traveling helps us to see the world in a new light. In this presentation, Alex Hugh shares how traveling helps us to open our eyes to the unknown and expand our perceptions with vibrant ideas and radiant images to help enhance and better our daily lives.

What Colour is Your Blood?

@ 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.

Colour Decoded

@ VOL 32 ON JAN 20, 2015

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.
