Colour Capture App

IMG_1611

As part of the ongoing Hues project with Jenni Grove, I’m creating an app for iOS which makes it easier to record environmental colours. The app takes the camera input and outputs an RGB colour value. This is based either on an average sampling of the whole screen, or the colour value of an individual pixel in the view. This makes it easy for me to record changing colour values, and in particular trace sea colours over time. Placing the iPhone in the window above Porthmeor beach allowed me to record the changing shades of blue, green and grey over the day. The plan is to use these colours in generative art projects.
