In spite of the fact that the physical phenomenon of sound and color has been researched by a number of scientists, I will work on it from the human perspective, defining forms of energy as pollution, function, joy and help in human life in order to create design solutions in sound and music via colors. Working with youth in recent years has been an interesting and unique dynamic that has given me new ideas. Waves are inherent in color and sound, providing much promising imagination to connect them or find connections.
Title of the project “Reds Are Always Longer?” refers to the description of the shades of red from the view of physics and the fact that louder objects are mainly red (rockets and explosions). I also am borrowing the context of the silent concert by Ukrainian artist and architect Florian Yuriev in 1956 in Kyiv, during which the audience did not hear the sound, but saw the flow of color gradients on a special light screen.
Project : Reds Are Always Longer?
Guided by an artist, local youth in the Netherlands, Belgium and Ukraine will explore the relationship between color and sound in their surroundings and share the experience of the physical phenomenon from a human perspective.
