Abstract

Being born as a color deficient woman, the idea of perception has always been an interesting topic to me. When discussing the idea of color, more often than not, the idea that we as a population may all see different colors is brought up. A few years ago I did some research on color theory and I came across an article titled, “Your Color Red Really Could Be Blue.” In this article ,Joseph Carol of the Medical College of Wisconsin stated, "I think we can say for certain that people don't see the same colors, One person's red might be another person's blue and vice versa.” In today’s Society, what you see, is not always what you get. As individuals each of us perceive events, environments, people, and maybe even colors in different ways. For my project I will be researching the idea of perception within our individual lives and within our society as a whole. To study the idea of perception, I will interview random individuals and discuss with them what others might perceive and misconceive about them, their lives, and their personality. I will also ask other individuals to prejudge the previously interviewed individuals by appearance only, hoping to gather data that uncovers an unknown fact or personality trait. I will also study the idea of perception, by researching environmental and sociological theory that will create diverse data and have double sided arguments. To add to the conversation of perception, I will create a research poster that is designed as one poster but can be viewed two ways and creates two separate image, whether by glasses, a decoder sheet, or holding the poster upside-down. This idea illudes that there is always another way to perceive our surroundings and will be a great way to present my findings.
