Mmmm, colours! I can never get enough of them.

Right now I like the colour of…

the color of... lips

And the colour of…
The color of... a Swedish forest
…the Swedish forest.

And what about these colours:

The color of... pink hair
The colour of… pink coloured hair!

The color of... clouds
The colour of… the sky.

The color of... collaged index cards
The colour of… index cards!

The color of... me
The colour of… me!

The Color of…

These colours were generated by the site

THE COLOR OF uses an averaging algorithm on the colour pixel values of the queried images, displaying the result incrementally as each picture is loaded. Taking the assumption that random images will average out to become grey, we can attribute any colour bias which deviates from grey, to the term as searched. Any further interpretation is then up to the user.

I tweeted about it a while back but just had to come back to it because it’s such a cool tool to play with! The description above is for programmers and nerds – but the site’s outcome is like colour poetry. I love watching the colours develop and see if they will resembles what I imagined that colour to look like. What colours will you mix today?
