Starting with the question What is a Color Lab?, Color Lab Faculty Fellowship recipient Eric Anderson proposes an interdisciplinary historical study of facilities and techniques for exploring color in design. The RISD Color Lab occupies a lineage of institutional spaces in which scientists, designers, makers, and theorists have carried out technical experiments, creative work, and scholarly research aimed at producing knowledge about color. Through this project, Anderson situates the Color Lab historically to consider the possibilities and limits of color research for design.
