[SISEA 1990] Paper: Brian Evans – Temporal Coherence with Digital Colour


To effectively structure time with abstract visual materials requires a visual grammar – a time-based formalization of line, shape and color. Color is especially problematic. Turning to the dynamic of tension-release, to the idea of neutral, balanced and weighted color domains, and to the discrete nature of computer raster images, it is possible to devise and implement a syntax for structuring time with color. We can measure and create color domains that have a dynamic relationship and hence create time-based color compositions.
