Lecture by Darius Kowal THE PSYCHOLOGY OF COLOUR AND LIGHT

Darius Kowal has graduated from the Glasgow School of Art and has since exhibited at numerous solo and group exhibitions. He also works as a curator and head of the Combustion Gallery in Zadar, Croatia. In his professional artistic work he focuses on the creative process and sees the time he spends in the atelier as equally valuable as the public presentation. Darius has won numerous awards for his work, including Artsource Industry Award, Art Monthly Australia Award and Deans Honour Roll.

Kowal will focus his educational presentation, adapted to all ages, on the psychological impact of colour and light on the individual. The presentation will address the questions regarding the origins of light and singularity, electromagnetism, unusual manifestation of photons and wavelengths on quantum scales, and the example of Thomas Young’s double slit experiment. He will also lecture on the colour spectrum, the appearance of colours, shades and tones, and the relationship between the eye and the brain, questioning what we actually see. Darius will also present research on the use of specifically coloured light in scientific (and media) experiments, portray how colour is used to affect humans (marketing, sales, catering, etc.) at a subconscious level and also present the topic of Seasonal Affective Disorder phenomenon occurring in the Northern countries, especially in winter when natural light is scarce. The lecture will also include the use of paint in historical artworks in relation to contemporary works. The aim of the lecture is to explore the effect of light and colour on humans, as well as to stimulate the visitors’ interest in colour and light and expand their knowledge of these physical quantities.

The expected duration of the lesson is 90 minutes.
Language of the lecture: English
The entrance to the lecture is free.
