Abstract

R.g.b-project is an experiential project in which participants are invited to interact with the surrounding environment mediated by the concepts of the R(ed)G(reen)B(lue)-color space, the color space commonly used in digital technology. Participants are asked to go on a color-walk using a video camera to document one of the three colors, Red, Green or Blue. The footage is then imported into a computer application, the R.g.b-surveillance machine. This application uses the biases of digital imaging technology towards the colors, red, green and blue to create a cinematic tool. The participants create a dialogue with this tool's parameters in relationship with the camera, the color pallet of the environment they are shooting in and one's own perception of red, green and blue
