“On the 50th anniversary of Josef Albers’s The Interaction of Color, Yale University Press has released the work as an interactive teaching tool along the lines of what the Bauhaus master originally intended.”

“Interaction of Color is a masterwork in twentieth-century art education. Conceived as a handbook and teaching aid for artists, instructors, and students, this timeless book presents Albers’s unique ideas of color experimentation in a way that is valuable to specialists as well as to a larger audience. Originally published by Yale University Press in 1963 as a limited silkscreen edition with 150 color plates, Interaction of Color first appeared in paperback in 1971, featuring ten representative color studies chosen by Albers. The paperback has remained in print ever since and remains one of the most influential resources on color for countless readers.”

Interesting documentary that deals with the challenges these creative professionals face in their daily work. Although I enjoined this clip, conversations such as these always remind of the difference between Art and Design. Design is when you are given a problem to solve and Art is when you create your own problem to solve.
