Color Cue: Explorations in Perception is a juried projection featuring photographic images that explore color as a subject, muse, and scientific phenomenon. Utilizing color theory and the effects of color combinations, Color Cueexposes an underlying conceptual framework that brings into question how the environment and culture affect the perception of color. For centuries color was considered an unexplained phenomenon until Isaac Newton discovered color waves in the 1660’s through his experimentations with sunlight and prisms. Through the years, humanity has continued to make discoveries and create theories about how and why color is a part of the visual experience. Photography has played a vital role in advancing the understanding of the visual world – from the invention of color film to the creation of lenses, photography has helped us understand how we see.

In this International call for entry, CENTER encourages photographers who use color in experimental ways, explore the ways in which the notion of color can be expanded, and consider the visual process in their work to apply. $20 entry fee, $5 for CENTER Members and New Mexico Residents.
