Ellen Hackl Fagan: COLOR SOUND GRAMMAR

20110508

ColorSoundGrammar: A COMMUNITY INTERACTIVE GAME.

The public is invited to partake in a playful interactive game in which viewers get recorded in their selection of colored squares that best represent each note of the Do-Re-Mi musical scale, later getting translated into pseudoscientific meditations, and ultimately, paintings on the blended language of color and sound.

Looking for consistencies in peoples colorsoundgrammar choices can demonstrate that there is an innate grammar we all posses, perhaps used more consistently at an earlier phase in our evolution. Participants leave with a personal awareness of color’s sonic potential and its communicative breadth.

Ellen Hackl Fagan earned a Masters of Fine Arts Degree in Painting and Interdisciplinary Media in 2005 from Hartford Art School, CT. She has been a RADIUS artist at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, CT and has exhibited her work extensively throughout New England more recently, in New York City.
