The Colourscape Experience
“Colourscapes are walk-in structures of colour and light, originally created by artist Peter Jones in the early 70s.
Colour can be seen, and it can also be felt. Colour is energy. Colourscape is about opening up your senses, stimulating creativity and extending your awareness of colour” (via Colourscapes).
“Incredible shift of emotions and sensations associated with moving from one colour to another. Red was powerful on a physical level compared to blue and violet. In every combination of colour each pathway became a journey into the unknown”. ~ via Colourscapes
Colourscapes appeals to different age groups, there’s something about it that speaks to everyone!
Symphony of Senses concert perfomance // Everyone was mesmerised.
Let out your inner child // embrace colour
If you do go, take the time to think about how you respond to the colours. Does it calm you? I avoided the red 😛
“A wonderful way to study colour theory in the real –I found the red overwhelming. A beautiful place to make all sorts of relationships between space, colour, air sound” ~via Colourscapes
There are so many opportunities for creative photography here, I could easily have spent more time here experimenting with fun silhouette portraits. Couldn’t stay long, as it got pretty hot inside & I was fasting 😛
Cafe Open// After all that excitement, one could do with a bit of cake & coffee (if one is not fasting) 😉
Long Pond, Clapham Common// A model boat race was taking place..
Fancy a colourful adventure in London? Well, this is fun AND different. Read on..
Colourscapes festival is an unusual & fun event; a brilliant way to experience colour, light, & sound. It is made of a series of interconnected chambers, which are in primary colours.
You put on a coloured cloak to become a part of this intriguing space. As I wandered through the chambers, I found myself drawn to certain colours, & avoided red for most of the part. Don’t you find it insanely interesting how colour effects us, our psyche, our mood. As well light.
Distance created shadows, the various hues differing in intensity. It really is a place one can get some inspiration from, & come up with ideas.
Or simply have fun with friends or family. Old or young. Everyone was excited & smiling.
Try it for yourself. It has the elements of exploring, creativity, & photography. Perfect ingredients for a inspiring experience.
Ps. They have workshops too.
