Paper Abstract

Blends and combinations that occur in the world of color are of a great variety. The combinations vary from barely perceptible changes to the most intense contrasts. The vast world of color is explored in search of criteria for its organization, its diversity and complexity being evidenced, identifying three strategic fields for performing work: the surroundings, the object and the perceiver. These fields are recognizable rather than separable as the integration is confirmed in this study. Before this complexity, we decided to begin in a way that contrasts with the nearly most elemental criterion for organizing colors, the criterion of gradation, from complex to simple. The gradual order is a sequential order and of transition between two given color values. In principle, it is an order of linear conceptualization. Let us broaden the approach and consider the line, firstly its single-direction aspect and then in space which is also chromatic, and apply the same criterion of gradation between the structural elements, line and space. We can perceive that the line tends to abandon its limitations, to combine and interact with the surrounding space and shows us with this its freedom, form the simple to the complex.
