This is a color study I created and titled ‘Treading Water’. I started this project by collecting items from the environment around me to then use to develop a color scheme of primary and secondary colors. Next, I named the individual colors and the collection as a whole. From there I began photographing my colors in the environment. I created an 11″x17″ folding poster, a 16-page mini-zine, 20 polaroids, 10 patterns, as well as the objects I collected. The entire project was designed to fit neatly in a clear plastic cover.
