01 SILVER AND GOLD
The Curious Temptation of Colour
The light that sweeps across our solar system at 186,000 miles per second and breathes life upon our world, has a temperature beyond its warmth. Those photons bend and scatter in our atmosphere, warming and cooling as they go. Each day, every season, has a colour shift that we perceive, like the smell of cut grass, or the burning of winter wood.
Like your olfactory, open your eyes and your cerebrum will do the rest, it will bless those colours with a billion cross-referenced memories, and spit out an answer. Late afternoon in the autumn, a winter morning, the scattering of light, a prism, the ‘rayon vert’. Silver and gold…
The meeting of water is entanglement waiting to happen. Gas and liquid have their properties illuminated by photons. Two slabs of grey H2O sandwich a sliver of silver.
