Work & Discussion with Geoffrey Owen Miller


A Lighter side of Prism — A Presentation about color
























“I’ve become obsessed with rainbows. It’s pure unadulterated color.


Rainbows occur when rain is hit by sunlight. A simple process called refraction happens naturally, and the component colors of white light are shown in their supersaturated individual states. With common materials you can recreate that process. And take your love of rainbows away from a rainy day.


At TRD I’m hoping to demonstrate the production of rainbows on demand and explain a bit about the technical side of how and what we’re seeing.


This presentation is part of a larger exploration for a forthcoming book on the technical and experiential sides of color and seeing.”
