Event Details

Join New Hampshire Institute of Art to hear Color Scientist, Harold Boll speak about how the brain responds to colors in different conditions.

Quantum Mechanics explains the dual wave/particle nature of light. In a similar sense, color, so dependent on light for its manifestation, also has a dual quality of its own. It is both an aesthetic as well as a phenomenon amenable to scientific inquiry. One component in the experience of color is the visible radiation or physical stimulus that enters the eye. But the more interesting and often confounding aspect of color is how the brain interprets the signal it receives from the eye. Measuring instruments can unambiguously determine a physical stimulus. But the brain is the final arbiter of appearance; it alone determines how the color is perceived. This talk will demonstrate factors which affect color perception.
