Colours & Emotion For November 2017

Colours & Emotion
  1. In theatre and film, colours set the tone and mood even before the artistes perform. The colours used can have different meanings and intent on-screen. On one side of the spectrum, red is used as a way to show anger, violence and aggression. For instance, the abrupt moment in the movie, 'Ex Machina' when the plot takes a sinister turn is accompanied with a red glow. This works as a cue to the audience to pay attention because something crucial is about to happen. Yellow is used in the movie 'Kill Bill' to depict Uma Thurman's instability and madness. Romantic comedies make good use of pastels like lilac, pink and beige, to name a few.

  2. Movies stir up emotions in ways you may not imagine. Whether it is a certain aesthetic choice made when colouring or filtering during the edit process, or the wardrobe and objects with which the frame is filled, colour can manipulate the emotions of an audience on many different conscience and subconscious levels. Wes Anderson's compelling use of colour is definitely worth exploring. Red, light pink, violet and magenta can be associated with love, passion and romance. Though they can carry other meanings and associations, the general understanding and consensus recognizes these as colours related to love.

We are sure you must have seen the lopsided teardrop or stylized tadpole known as the 'paisley' design. Have you ever wondered where it came from? Traditionally, the paisley shape is supposed to be a pine cone and the East India Company began bringing paisley shawls from India to Britain in the 18th century. Soon the exotic garment became hugely popular. One of the largest producers of the material was the town of Paisley in Scotland, which was popular for its textile mills. Eventually, the fabric took on the name of the town that produced it in abundance.
