[SISEA 1990] Paper: Edward Zajec – Orphics: Computer Graphics and the Temporal Dimension of Electronic Colour


This article is a continuation of the ideas presented at the FISEA symposium in 1988 regarding different ways of thinking about the spatial and temporal dimensions of color. In the first part, historical as well as perceptual arguments are presented in discussing certain premises concerning color quality, structure and dimension. In the second part, questions regarding optimal strategies for color dynamics and space articulation are discussed with a focus towards a clear distinction between constructive and descriptive ways of relating color to space and time.
