Aspect Seeing in Architecture
2008 (English)In: Colour – Effects & Affects: Stockholm Interim Meeting of the Intenational Association [AIC] / [ed] Karin Fridell Anter, Iman Kortbawi, Stockholm: Swedish Colour Centre Fonundation/AIC , 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
The subject of this paper is colour contrast phenomena in space. The paper is an attempt to convey what might be seen and perceived – and in addition, to be able to follow the transformations and performances of colours. My research method contains concepts from Chevreul, Goethe, Katz and Wittgenstein as tools in order to describe the transformation of colours in space. A central concept is what Wittgenstein has termed aspect seeing, which involves theories of what we see, what we do not see and what we expect to see. Thus the paper investigates the link between colour application and colour contrast phenomena that arise, and also how we perceptually and consciously become aware of what we see in space. For Wittgenstein aspect seeing means to see one and the same thing in at least two ways. Such seeing involves thinking, interpreting and insight.
