Program: Colors – A Dance of Light

Presenter: The Nourishment Projects, Soma Roy


From mosaic renovations at Galla Placidia, the vibrancy in national flags to communicating your bedroom wall hue preference, in the world of commerce, color is about precision. Scheele’s green, Turner’s yellow; the names of colors are history. Mongolians have more than 300 words for the color of horses. Perhaps John Ruskin was disappointed by Isaac Newton’s audacity in taking the magic out of rainbows and even if never having seen a Scandinavian barn, decorators routinely traffic in “barn red”.

In the imprecise and highly symbolic natural world, colors journey through the magic of alkalinity, sunniness, and that ever-lasting mystery, time. At twilight, when the heavens turn lilac and soft, colors discard our words and the poetry of silence reigns.

“In this world love has no color and yet I am stained by you”.
