Paper Abstract

The subjective perception of colors has been extensively studied, with a focus on single colors or on combinations of a few colors. Not much has been done, however, to understand the subjective perception of colors in other contexts, where color is not a single feature. This is what the Kansei community in Japan has set itself to, by exploring subjective experiences of perceptions, and colors in particular, given its obvious influence on humans' emotional changes. The motivation is to create computational models of user visual perceptions, so that computers can be endowed with the ability to personalize visual aspects of their computational task, according to their user. Such a capability is hypothesized to be very important in fields such as printing, information search, design support, advertisement, etc. In this paper, we present our experimental results in the study of color as a contextual feature of images, rather than in isolation. The experiments aim at understanding the mechanisms linked to the personal perception of colors in complex images, and to understand the formation of color categories when labeling experiences related to color perception.
