Dynasty of Light: Foundational Studies And Discourse in Color Theory
There is overwhelming evidence that ultimately, color's primary attribute is it's emotional function, or it's power and authority to create specific mood nuances. Of course, the function of this text is to study all of the components of color, and yet it is the dominant and rather manipulative character of color or mood appeal, which repeatedly surfaces and in due course validates and is the sum total of all other traits. Additionally, Dynasty of Light recognizes light as the source of color, and is therefore committed to the physics of color, as well. The physiological, psychological, symbolical, and art historical approaches to color and it's component facts and theory is featured, accompanied by several cultural perspectives. One compelling feature is the added function of the analysis of color pertaining to any given color composition. The text encourages both project solution skills (hands-on), and the written/oral analysis of color. Evidence indicates by teaching color theory from both a project and written analysis emphasis, reveals conclusively that the student who practices both, has the advantage. Twenty-first century color skills and knowledge has created higher demands for color excellence than ever before. The student of color needs every advantage possible in order to compete in today's world. This text provides the tools and insight needed for color superiority.
