Melbourne: don´t miss Chromatopia exibition on colour!
On May 31, a wonderful exibition will open in Melbourne, Australia: Chromatopia. Wish we could be there to see it. This text, describing the exibition is promising:
This voyage of discovery features pigments made from deadly metals, poisonous minerals, bodily waste, crushed insects and predatory sea snails. Colours dug simply from the ground beneath us, others so expensive that only kings and popes could afford them.
Within the exhibition, see the living process of historical colour manufacture in action.
Also featured is the new world of strange modern colours that only reveal themselves when touched, are invisible in sunlight or shine in the dark.”
Do, at least, have a look at their site. http://chromatopia.org/ . Lovely pictures, lovely pieces of info!
