The Mutability and Stasis of Reactive Color Fields

colorfieldA “reactive color field” is any optical reaction that can be described as a wash of related colors over major portions of the projection surface; a color field is distinguished from a more typical graphical display by the relative lack of areas of high contrast. Mutable color fields can either cycle through the spectrum of colors repeatedly or transition directly to a less dynamic state, such as a solid color or total darkness. Color field stasis is a condition that is stable but not necessarily locked into such end-point conditions without any means of escape. In some cases, a properly balanced color field will present one or more static color “wells” that can be gently influenced by changing certain properties of the optical reactor’s registration.
