Project with Carla Valdivia.
This project began with a small exchange on colour and eventually became a collection of experiments made to challenge people's preconceptions of the fluorescent family.
It first started with the idea of being less cautious with cautionary colours and while working together for a month, our ideology became more refined. Through the process of thinking and making simultaneously, we produced some work we could later reflect on in order to better understand our subject. Our formal research served as a way of becoming familiar with fluorescent colours in history, in science and in human behaviour. With this knowledge at hand, we developed a few studies to test how we could sneak fluorescent colours into people's lives.
This idea of infiltrating the everyday with bright colours began to form an ideology, the start of a statement we would pursue; to make people question why we have preconceptions tied to colour. The dossier is a recording of our three months of communication and experiments. A few outcomes include screen printed lined paper pads, our own take on Josef Albers experiments - the interaction of fluorescent colors in this case and a silk-screened flag.
