The Colours of Moods - Visual explorations
Colours have different associations and engender different feelings in each of us – and it can be almost impossible to describe the tone you see in your mind’s eye and have someone else see it in exactly the same way.
Say “yellow” to one person and they might conjure up a lemon tone – to another, it could be anything from corn to daffodils, dandelions or butterscotch. Colours aren’t just Pantone swatches – they carry unique meanings and memories for everyone.
The Colours of Moods is a conceptual collaboration of Radim Malnic and LA-based photographer Nathalie Gordon with an idea of trying to portray the nuances within colours and explore how our responses to them depend on our own emotions and environments by creating a series of colour-based images.
A contemporary palette was used rather than loud, vibrant tones. The aim of each piece was to build a floor space with geometric walls either in colour harmony or contrast. Each set is based on a two-tone colour selection, expanded with other colours that can be seen as a colour thesaurus.
We exchanged ideas and mood boards for a few months before the shoot in LA. The project was directed and produced from London, all 3D work was created in Budapest with the final retouch done in Scotland. The whole project was produced in the space of ten days, but it took about a year to find the time.
