The Colour & Emotion exhibition is the outcome of an interdisciplinary and collaborative research project looking at colour, sensation and emotion.
The Colour & Emotion exhibition is the outcome of an interdisciplinary and collaborative research project looking at colour, sensation and emotion and was funded by a UCL Grand Challenges: Human Wellbeing Award. It brought together artists, a human geographer, a speech and language therapists and a group of adults with acquired communication difficulties in a series of co-production workshops in January - March 2017.
The broader aim of the research was to investigate the potential within colour to establish a non-verbal approach to measuring human well-being creatively. In a series of co-production workshops in January-March 2017. Each workshop explored how colour can create a visual language for expressing feelings and emotions and from the results a Colour & Emotion Toolkit was designed and 5 prototypes produced. Accompanying the toolkit is a publication, Colour & Emotion Manual, which provides instructions for its use. The exhibition showcases the toolkit, research conducted during the workshops and includes a number of works by artists who have been involved in its making or have been involved in working with colour and human wellbeing.
