Season of Color - Perspectives No. 364
Season of Color
Since vision is thought to provide 90% of the information we process*, color is a major part of everything we do. However, there are around 300 million people worldwide who have difficulty discerning certain colors. What does our art look like to them? What does the world look like to them? People with red/green Color Vision Deficiency—the most common type—often report only seeing shades of gray in those color spaces. Hard to comprehend in this season where so much red and green is used to create a festive holiday atmosphere everywhere we look.
