Description
Course examines global and regional use of color as a visual language and as a means of trans-cultural/transnational communication. Color is explored as a cultural indicator of beauty, status, and group identity in a comparative study among geographically and culturally diverse locations. Course material takes a discipline-correlated approach where twentieth and twenty-first century visual artworks are used to present examples of color in a cultural context and to begin a dialog of contemporary issues and philosophies to include aesthetics, life style, religion, race, gender, global economics and politics. Collapse of cultural identity is addressed through a review of color as a function of global marketing strategies and Internet communications.
