Exploratory Work at RISD
Complementary Hues

Every color is made up of a certain combination of red, blue and green. Changing the hue, saturation, tint and transparency of a color can vastly alter its meaning, and how our brain understands and associates it. In this project, I set out to explore the limits of understanding we have for colors. Using a program called Processing, I collected images and altered the interpretation of clusters of pixels. Depending on the RGB value of a cluster of pixels, that cluster would either change in hue, saturation or change into its complementary color.
