Paper Abstract

This project is about color-design paintings with evident chromatic contents to be located in several parts of the city. This project aims to make a two-dimension work alive in the three-dimension urban environment thus provoking a global vision of color and at the same time establishing a relation between both dimensions of the surrounding environment. Each work, which consists of a big colorful canvas, invites people to accept color as an active and aesthetic element to be experimented also in those areas that are normally without color. The project of color has been created and diversified considering the differences among various parts of the city. It is a confluence- comparison relationship between color and architecture. This project is part of a wide-research on 're-education to color,' helping people to enjoy the positive vital message of color. Re-appropriation of color is therefore an element of cultural evolution for a more harmonious and sensitive relationship with the environment. Hence, it is the responsibility of scientists and aesthetic operators to investigate and communicate new suggestions in the exciting field of color. Aesthetic operators along with scientists may contribute to a richer exploration in the use of color under innovative circumstances, in order to stimulate sensitivity to colors.
