The Color Series Project Pt. 2

The Color Series Project Pt. 2

*Richard Rembert/Justine Carter-Soleyn Collaboration*

The Color Series Project explores how different hues and values of colors evoke various emotions. Colors play a vital role in society and ways in which people express themselves as individuals. “Every color has meaning that will either inherently sense, or have learned about by association and/or conditioning, which enables us to recognize the messages and meanings delivered.”

*The meaning of colors can vary depending on culture and circumstances.*

Welcome back to the Color Series Project. The series that explores edgy, poignant topics that you deal with every day using colors and a camera medium as the vehicle. We wanted to take you on a visual experience and journey using color mixes that you wouldn’t normally see. Just in case you missed the first installment of the series, you can view here to catch up!

The video medium of this project is shot and edited by Justine Carter-Soleyn.

After you watch the video, read through the various colors and their relationship with each other. Photography and editing done by Richard Rembert.
