SENSING
COLOUR

AIC 2022 Toronto Meeting

We are very excited to invite you to participate in AIC 2022 Toronto on the theme “Sensing Colour” to be held in Toronto, Canada, June 13–16, 2022.

We encourage in-person participation as much as possible, but remote/online participation will be available for those who are unable to attend otherwise.

The theme “Sensing Colour” offers a great breadth of opportunity for participants from diverse disciplines and modes of inquiry to contribute to colour awareness and knowledge in an interdisciplinary forum. It highlights how colour offers itself to us, in what ways it approaches and engages us, affects our awareness, and harnesses our attention. In so many diverse ways, and through so many different lenses, colour is being studied as an influential shaper of human experience.

Through all our senses and faculties – through intellectual, cultural and material ways of knowing and feeling – we seek to observe and utilize the remarkable complexity of colour, whether material or immaterial, whether conceptual or practical, sociological or biological, natural or technological.
