Abstract [en]

Studies of colour in space are complex. Many components need to be considered. Thus, the experience of a colour depends on a number of things: the individual’s colour vision, illumination, the way the light is reflected, colours meeting in different distances in the room, the colours on various materials, colour phenomena, colours of adjacent surfaces and their surroundings. The subject of this paper is the inconstancy, the non-solidity of a colour hue. In a course this spring semester at the KTH School of Architecture in Stockholm, a group of students chose a ”soft, light and inconstant” green colour to work with; a non specified green to use their own expression. Some green hues are bluish and some green are yellowish but this green can change in all directions. The group of students staged a short urban experiment using the green colour by creating a film sequence. In this paper, via the student’s work, I want to evoke and highlight this quite “anonymous city colour in everyday public space”. The examination will be discussed in line with the theories of Heisenberg and Merleau-Ponty.
