Black and White Art

Kurt Black

Black and White Art

A monochromic image is composed of one color (or values of one color). A monochromatic object or image reflects colors in shades of limited colors or hues. Images using only shades of grey (with or without black or white) are called grayscale or black-and-white.

Looking Through the Mirror

Looking Through the Mirror

Mirrors and reflections are enormously important in art, and so common a theme, that you should keep an eye out for them: they will help explain the worku2019s underlying meaning. Hereu2019s why. The mind has been likened to a mirror for as long as humans have written, painted, sculpted, etched and composed poetry.

Above the View

For years graffiti writers and street artists have sought these undiscovered spots as a kind of refuge, an urban backyard for hanging out and going big, often collaboratively.

They are often found in human-made things, like building and machines while biomorphic shapes are found in nature. These shapes may look like leaves, flowers, cloudsu2014things that grow, flow, and move.

Art White Noise

The sound is not actually a color. The u201cwhiteu201d simply describes the fact that this particular sound is a combination of every frequency. Thatu2019s why, deep in the soundscape playlists of the Internet, there are sounds called u201cbrownu201d or u201cpinku201d or even u201cblue.u201d Those sounds are not u201cwhite noiseu201d because some of their frequencies are being played at different amplitudes, intended to drown out very specific sounds.

Spaces Between Imagination

This special issue originates from an international workshop on u201cVico and imagination,u201d that took place at Aalborg University in 2014, within a research project on Giambattista Vico and the epistemology of psychology. Imagination has inexplicably been relegated to the background in contemporary psychology.
