Colour in Mind - From Perception to Art

The interdisciplinary conference "Colour in Mind - From Perception to Art" will take place on the 21.-23. of September 2016 in the city of Tuebingen (Germany).

It is held by the German Colour Association e.V. together with the Institute of Media Studies and the Research Institute for Ophthalmology of the Eberhard Karls University of Tuebingen.

The interdisciplinary conference will present talks from four different research areas: neurobiology and perception, nature and living environments, arts and culture, and media and technology.

The aim of the conference is to showcase the multiple and diverse aspects of the topic „Colour“ from various perspectives and following a wide range of approaches.

One focus includes colour perception and its neuronal foundation in humans as well as animals, and the representation of colour in the brain, including the development of colour preferences. The other focus addresses colour in movies, art and technology as well as design and will illustrate and examine outstanding examples of artistic use of and communicative expression through colour.

Furthermore, new developments and technical innovations on the field of colour and light will be presented, while practical workshops and art exhibitions thematically complement the theoretical talks and give participants the chance to dive even deeper into the complex world of colour.
