Rethinking colour as a Multisensorial experience

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


In this paper I explore the interaction between colour and the human experience. The research is focused on colour as a multisensory phenomenon, where colour is understood as an active agent and more like a process. In previous research, the knowledge of colour has generally been
understood through different disciplines, instead of formulating it in multidisciplinary way. In my doctoral dissertation, I have started to understand and study colour in a more holistic way. I understand colour experience to be connected not only with the human perspective but also with
many different kinds of entities, such as the air we are breathing, water, wind as well as other human and non-human contacts such as technology, plants and animals. This paper discuss colour as one possible entity among other entities by using the posthuman philosophy. The research will
have significant contribution to the development of teaching colours in art education.
