The education plenary panel will discuss color, human perception, and how our languages impact our ability to perceive color. Panelists include Dustyn Bork, Wuon-Gean Ho, Irena Kečkeš and Brian Sago.
The panel will look at how a few specific languages either meet or diverge from Berlin & Kay’s 1969 theory of the origin of color terms across cultures. We will discuss practical uses of color etymology for artists including a “color thesaurus” exercise inspired by Ingrid Sundberg’s work that will be useful to artists and educators.
