Colour is everywhere. It stimulates our senses, excites our emotions, and complements the moods. But have you ever wonder how they influence our perception?
Imagine tiny Pocky crumbs appearing in colour palettes inspired by our everyday things... How do we see the objects now? What would the Pocky crumbs camouflage as today?
“Five Pocky Crumbs” is a web-based exploration on colours and the palettes of the everyday things around us. Research indicates that the human eye can distinguish about 10 million different colours. But how often do we pay attention to the colour schemes? And how every unique palette help identifies, brands, or influence our perceptions of these objects?
The premise behind “Five Pocky Crumbs” is to view everyday things through the perspective of colours, condensed and symbolized purely by five dots against a solid background, all in a different hue and/or intensity. Can we still recognize these objects when they are represented by just a few colours? With over 100 entries curated to date, my inspirations are drawn from our daily life, from nature and everyday objects such as lavender, ruby chocolate and iPhone X, to movies and cultural icons like Green Book, Bohemian Rhapsody, and Crazy Rich Asians. By focusing solely on colours, the series unpeels the core complexity of colours and examines how our perceptions are shaped by colours alone in our everyday life.
