Color understanding based on Reading

In reality, we all know that colors¬†have¬†different meaning to each one of us, but have we¬†discovered all the different¬†colors that may be resulted when asking one another to visually show what does the color red or green¬†looks like? As I read¬†some of the pages on colors from both ¬†Design Elements by Timothy Samara and ¬†Graphic Design The New Basics by Ellen Lupton, I was surprised on how each¬†individual could have their own representation of what a particular color could be framed differently. our visual memories on colors are very different from one another, it could be based on the saturation that are in each color which¬†shows different amount of color or value like light to dark. According to¬†Josef Albers, “If one says ‘Red’ and there are 50 people listening,¬†it can be expected that there will be 50 reds in their minds. And… all¬†these reds will be very different. colors present themselves in continuous flux, constantly related to changing neighbors and changing conditions.”¬†This proves that¬† colors are perceived on different levels regardless to the visual view or experiences and even further. ¬†
