Tribute to Goethe's Theory of Color by Timea Andorka

Tímea Andorka, a freelance graphic designer from Budapest, Hungary, was a part of an international design competition entitled ‘Goetheorie’ which pays tribute to Goethe’s ‘Theory of Colors’ established in 1810. Shown here are a few pieces that Tímea created based on those theories using light to cast colors as well as shadows.

“Goethe’s interest in the experience of color outlines his scientific profile – which is the metaphor elaborated on by the installation Color Profile. In this case the figurative element of the composition is the shadow, traditionally conceived of as a lack of light and color, which however appears and gives the impression of a bust only when the coloured stripe is lit from the appropriate angle.” –Tímea Andorka
