Beau Lotto is a neuro scientist who comducts small social experiments involving colour in contrast, colour correction, colour constancy and augmented reality. You could say his work explores how we see the world and what happens within the eye and the brain when we see, and how we understand and interprete reality. Lotto thinks that colour vision is complex and in no way fragile. We do not just see the colours of objects as they are but as they are useful to us. The eye corrects and fills in colour where it isn’t so that the world makes sense. In fact the eyes peripheral vision does not see colour, only the point of focus and surrounding areas see the colour and fill the grey spaces with the learnt colour. This is unnoticeable as the brain works so quickly to understand the reality it is seeing.
