Josef Albers – Interaction of Color
translation: Iakovos Potamianos, Yiota Vryoni
The book “Interaction of Color” by Josef Albers is something unique. To the attempts of important scientists, philosophers and artists such as Newton, Goethe, Schopenhauer, von Helmholtz, Wittgenstein, Ostwald, Munsell, Itten and many others who seek to define color physically, to determine its psychological impact, to invent rational systems of classification and correlation, Albers pits perception, experimentation, training of the eye, and discovery. Contrary to a static order he proclaims the supremacy of a dynamic process of composition. This is a work that will surprise, will stimulate a sense of wonder and fill the reader with the exciting and subversive experience of penetrating vision.
