Magical Colour Space

When light falls on an object, it absorbs some of the light waves and reflects the rest. The human eye and brain convert this information into colour. ‘Magical Colour Space’ explores the basics of color perception. You step into a room whose walls appear to be made up of coloured stripes. When the light changes, our brain thinks it detects movement, creating the illusion of moving walls.
