Colours in the Dark by arcipello Colours in the Dark by arcipello
-----FULL VIEW & READ BELOW------


I started this image almost 8 months ago and have been working on it off and on since. I've always been intrigued as to how blind people percieve colour and how they might imagine it, for them im guessing its more about form and sensation i guess i was inspired by these thoughts. the image is more about the feeling of colours.

photoshop & Painter

also i dont feel there is excessive nudity so dont wish to hide the thumbnail due to "mature content"

That's amazing. I loved the idea of how blind people might see colour, or perhaps sense it!
I heard about a bloke who became blind after an accident and he looked forward to dreaming because then he knew he would see colours again.

"how blind people percieve colour" I guess they simply can't, at least not in the way that we precieve and feel it. Since they have never processed colours they don't attach emotions to certain colours and in that way it's my opinion that colours don't matter too much to them. It's just an insignificant parameter. To elaborate on this subject: it would be nice to see what would the effect of colours on people who 'suffer' from synesthesia, meaning that some people can 'hear' colours and the other way around ('see' sounds), all due to some irregular wiring and processing in the brain. But then again, this is not a discussion forum ;-) I just want to add that for me, your picture is simply stunning and vibrant with motion and colours. I guess that you can add another watcher on your list!
