ALABAMA CHANIN - THE FACTORY THIS WEEK - 1

THE FACTORY + ALABAMA CHANIN | 28/52 | 2018

“I found I could say things with colors and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.”Georgia O’Keeffe

Our lives are full of and, in many ways, dictated by color. We express ourselves with the color of our hair and clothing. The vibe of our home can be decided by the color of the walls and decor. Colors instruct us when to drive through an intersection and where we can park our cars. Though this practicality is vital to daily life, color also welcomes us to explore our imaginations and is an indispensable medium for artistic expression. This week we take a deeper look at what exactly “color” is and the effects it has on our lives.
