Scholes Library Special Collections
Sketches from the FuseLab Foundations students Albers Project
Joseph Albers was a Bauhaus master of color. The FuseLab Foundations’ students used plates from his Interaction of Color in Special Collections to begin to understand how a color shifts based on the other colors it interacts with. Using Albers’ compositions, students made two versions: one where the two colors in the middle of a ground are the same but look different and another where the colors are different but look the same. These are their sketches, tests, and notes, which led to some incredible interactions of color.
