Short public tours
“GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. Colour Coding Worlds”
27 August 

Our world is full of colour, but do all cultures see it in the same way? While the scientific basis for perception is identical for everyone, light waves can’t really explain how we name our impressions of colour, the number (and kind) of categories we divide these colours into, or the meanings and associations we ascribe to them.

Touring the exhibition, the guides shows how perception of colour sometimes differs enormously depending on the language and culture involved.
