Synergy, Reflection, Imagine, 2013

Yejin Cho


This psychological study of color started with a curiosity regarding how people might translate color into language and how written descriptions might then be translated again into color. For this project I chose three colors from the Sherwin-Williams collection, Synergy, Imagine and Reflection. Each of these names are incredibly ambiguous and open to interpretation in their own way, so different set of instructions were created for each color and documented as results.
