“Colors of the times we have spent together”
February 1, 2016
“Colors of the times we have spent together” is a data visualization created with data mined through facebook. The information and images used as reference were selected from a larger collection of images taken over a period of six and a half years. After downloading them all images were brought into a color matching/swatching processor called Adobe Kuler.
Using Adobe Kuler the Designer sampled colors from images of times her significant other and she has spent together. The sampled colors are representative of the photographs but do not tell her story through graphic illustration but rather through color layers that when combined amount to something – which is functioning in both a scientific sense and a symbolic sense. Such as the process of building a relationship the layers of colors sometimes coordinate and sometimes do not.
