This piece is a selection of 50 colour definitions found in the book
Farbnamenlexikon von A bis Z. A colour lexicon edited in Germany and written by George Seuffert in 1950 . This book is an attempt to classify the subjectivity of what a color is. I chose 50 descriptions found in the book, and selected 50 images from my archive according to the color descriptions contained in the book. The sound that accompanies the work is the recorded voice of the selected definitions. The viewer is free to decide which image corresponds to which description .
