Colour Cogs; a series of illustrations that begin to explore how colour affects mood, atmosphere, psychological state and even the impressions left on the human soul. This last bit may sound a bit ridiculous, however I have Wassily Kandinsky to back me up. Kandinsky stated in one of his many inspiring and enlightening chapters of his seminal work, Concerning the Spiritual in Art, that although the effect of the colours is forgotten when the eye is turned away, the superficial impression of varied colour may be the starting point of a whole chain of related sensations.
The idea that one colour compared to another colour will trigger a different sensation/reaction in a person is interesting, but I love the thought of the infinite possibilities of varying shades and combinations of colour and the subtle affects this could have upon the human soul. Again, it’s time to role out a quote from a mind that created ground breaking and truly unique works of art, whilst doing a bit of teaching at the Bauhaus:
“It is evident therefore that colour harmony must rest only on a corresponding vibration in the human soul; and this is one of the guiding principles of the inner need.”
The arrow direction in Colour Cogs is significant. A larger area of colour may have a more profound affect on the eye/soul, therefore more arrows spreading outwards illustrates this, however certain colours will have a deeper impact, and how colours react to each other will also be represented through arrow direction and number of arrows drawn.
The viewer’s psychological state before viewing the colour combination is also of significance, making each viewing experience unique, two people can never have the same experience.
Colour Cogs 4 (minimal movement), begins the process of exploring response to no colour, only blackness. The arrows move inwards, creating a crushing experience again relating to mood, atmosphere, psychological state and impression on the soul. A black hole within us.
Colour Cogs is an ongoing experiment that responds with every exposure to colour and each experience that accompanies it.
These t shirts are unique for being made exclusively for us wholly with fibres ring spun into yarns manufactured exclusively for WeAdmire. These yarns are then knitted into a single jersey fabric suitable for t shirts.
The CoolMax bit exploits the surface tension of water to wick moisture from your skin. It works through micro channels engineered into the profile of the fibre. These channels are physical attributes, they are there for the life of the fibre.
The Fresh FX bit embeds a silver salt in the molecular structure of the fibre that stops the propagation of bacteria which, left unchecked, ultimately cause a sour odour. Because the silver salt is embedded within the fibre it, like the wicking, is similarly permanent; it will not leech out with wear and washing.
These attributes deliver shirts that remain cool and dry almost regardless of what you might do in them and similarly they remain fresh. And the ongoing performance of the fabric is guaranteed. This is important, these shirts will become your favourite items of apparel, you will want to wear your shirts again and again.
These shirts are marvellous to travel with, they stay fresh if you don’t have the chance to wash them, they wash easily when you do have the chance, and they dry super quickly. There is also a very useful side effect to all this: our shirts keep anything you wear on top of them and what you might wear after wearing them fresher too.
The cut and fit and sizing of these shirts is exclusive to us and was specified by Anastasia Vouyouka, a published guru of fit in the fashion industry.
The feel of the very best natural fibre shirts you have experienced with the performance of the fibres that set the benchmarks for wicking and freshness. It is very unlikely you will have experienced this level of technical performance in a decorated t shirt before.
