Base on survey, red and green color blindness is the most common type of color blindness. Red-green color blindness is a combination of red-blindness (protan defects) and green-blindness(deutan defects). Two softwares are used to implement the following results .

ColorBrewer

Vischeck

I used color brewer is an application that allows one to design a color blind friendly map therefore it has a series of color choices with the option of “color blind” safe. Vischeck is to visualize how a colorblind person sees.

Testing for red and green color blindness…

Black text are used

Base on my observation, I can conclude that

Colors: White, Blue, brown, yellow have a closer resemblance to the original image.
Black and White will always be the safest.

Red/Green or any color that contain shades of red/green will make it difficult for color blind person to differentiate.

 of Study: Synesthetic experiences for color blind consumers in retail environment 

Research Statement:

The purpose of my study is to enhance the understanding of both color in packaging and allowing synesthetic experiences that will affect the colorblind person abilities to shop capably and effectively. Color blindness has both little and extreme effects on a persons life. The most extreme of this would be inability to shop in any situation that used color-coding for specific tasks. It is likely that colorblind consumers are unable to process some or all aspects of visual color information, potentially increasing their vulnerability in the marketplace. Colorblind persons are at a disadvantage in exchange relationships where their performance is related to see, to recognize and differentiate among colors. Color cues simply may not be processed and interpreted as intended. My justification for proposing this research is that while they cannot perceive certain colors, Synesthesia allows them to gain a deeper understanding among colors that they can see, and those they cannot see, they will be able to interpret information, colors appropriately and use products carefully to their advantage. Color blind person want to know what a color is, how to tell if something has a positive or negative impact to them. Therefore, it has led to my research questions:” How will synesthetic experiences enhances a color blind consumer’s activity?”,” How will incorporating other forms of “senses” affect their perception of color as well as emotionally?, “Will synesthetic experiences helps them to make better decisions when dealing with products that uses color-coding for specific tasks?, “In what ways will design improve the accessibility of color coding products to color blind consumers?

 

Pretty much fascinated about translating colors into sounds (mapping sounds to colors)  and I thought that I need a strong purpose to deliver the outcome. A couple of months back, I thought of doing on color blindness before. So I decided to shift the objective on a different direction to colorblind people, their lifestyle like shopping experiences. Example reinventing the packaging with sounds attach to it. Generally, color blind people face difficulties in using color pencils, they cannot differentiate what is red from green vice versa. I thought that was something I should look at and how I can make them remember the colors  by a certain “emotion” like sounds and visual cues like shapes/lines/patterns. Reading the tiny text printed on the color pencils is such a hassle, imagine you need to read all over again reach time you use a set of color pencils.

So I went to research about how each elements in the periodic table has a unique color and characteristics. And I found this website SpectroChrome

Dinshah Message/Theory:

1.The Sun is the source of all life and energy conveyed to the World by Oscillatory Potentiality of a spiral character, composed of the elements  essential to the chemical existence of the live Universe. All growth dependent on Solar Energy.

2.Sunlight is part of the energy converted to a specific purpose.

3.The light evolved from Solar Energy is White. It’s Emission Polarity has 7 main divisions. They are red, orange, yellow, green, blue indigo and violet. Every chemical elements exhibits a preponderance of One or more these colors under oscillatory disintegration. The world has all the elements that are known in the sun.

I found this interactive application where each chemical element is translated into a magical note base on what happens in an atomic nucleus as it decays from its excited states down toward its ground state. This decay happens in steps between the different energy levels in the nucleus. Each transition corresponds to the emission of a photon, a “gamma ray” which is a characteristic energy equalling the difference in energy between the levels.

Every nuclide has its own unique set of excited states and decay patterns, creating its own musical fingerprint. Since the microcosmic world is ruled by quantum mechanics, even each decay sequence is unique. It is a stochastic, random process, which leads to virtually infinite variations.

The Radioactive Orchestra uses information on transition energies and transition probabilities (each decay can often proceed to different lower-lying levels, with certain probabilities that can be deduced from experiments) in order to decide which kind of photon to emit. Its energy (measured in kiloelectronvolts, keV) is converted to an audible frequency in Hertz. The higher the gamma ray energy, the higher the pitch of the sound you will hear. This is also visualized graphically as a coloured gamma ray emitted from a schematic image of the nucleus. The colour of the photon corresponds to the energy, similarly to the colours of a rainbow. Using control buttons, the Radioactive Orchestra enables the user to modify the sounds and they are normally constrained to a musical scale. Several different nuclides can be made to “radiate music” simultaneously. The results can be stored in various file formats or exported into different applications.

I felt it was really into the microscopic world of the invisible nuclei.
