“Wrong Spectrum” (2015, 68 pages, color) collects film tests, poetry, texts and collected images that grew out of a research residency at The Exploratorium’s Center for Art and Inquiry. The primary focus is a re-performance of Goethe’s investigations of “edge-color” phenomena. Intended to make a point about the direct relationship between variable conditions and variable outcomes, Goethe’s experiments viewed simple test patterns under a range of environmental conditions, detailing the process by which color perception emerges from the natural world and dislodging the notion of a perceptual “fact” in favor of a spectrum of subjective possibilities.
