In this 2011 BBC Horizon documentary directed by Sophie Robinson, scientists explore issues associated with color and cognition.
Are colors really an illusion? Learn the surprising truth about how we all see the world. You may think a rose is red, the sky is blue and the grass is green, but it now seems that the colors you see may not always be the same as the colors I see. Your age, sex and even mood can affect how you experience colors. Scientists have unlocked the hidden power that colors can have over your life - how red can make you a winner, how blue makes time speed up, and more. This screening is in association with three concurrent abstract painting exhibitions at the UAM.
