Colour in Nature

Colour Research, 1972-1973, from the Morris/Trasov Archive
"The rainbow is a timeless departure point for the imagination. The physics of light and the perception of colour have engaged both artists and scientists.. The colour bar project grew out of informal collaborations in the late 1960’s between artists involved with the Intermedia movement in Vancouver and developed as a model for art and life experiments in the 1970’s. It remains a reference for continuing research. "
Visit Michael Morris, Vincent Trasov, and The Morris and Helen Belkin Gallery (where the physical archive resides)

Found/reminded of thanks to Liene and her amazing blog Hoola Whoop Please go there!
