There is proof that we all see differently: colour blindness. Kiyoshi Yamamoto Farias investigated it thoroughly and created a project where he made colorful textiles for the colour blind called Get Colour Blind, so the colour blind can actually appreciate the textiles as well. To Kiyoshi, color blindness isn’t properly defined. Take red for example. We can thousands and thousands of shades of red and magenta. A color blind person may not be able to see all these shades, but that’s no reason to say the person is blind. They see colors differently from most people. The color blind are actually color deficient.
More and more people are becoming color blind. Especially men. In Norway, about eight percent of the men are color blind, and they expect that to be ten percent in two years time. Most often, the color blind have trouble distinguishing between greens and reds. Would you like to learn more about color blindness? Check out www.colorblind.com by Daniel Fluck.
