What Is Color?
In 1666, English scientist Sir Isaac Newton discovered that when pure white light is passed through a prism, it separates into all of the visible colors. Newton also found that each color is comprised of a single wavelength and cannot be separated any further into other colors.
Further experiments demonstrated that light could be combined to form other colors. For example, red light mixed with yellow light creates an orange color. A color resulting from a mix of two other colors is known as a metamer. Some colors, such as yellow and purple, cancel each other out when mixed and result in a white light. These competing colors are known as complements.
Color and Psychology
Many color theorists throughout history have attempted to assign colors to particular human emotions. They believed that seeing particular colors caused particular emotion. Others even created tests they claimed would divulge the personality of the participant. While perceptions of color are somewhat subjective, there are some color effects that have universal meaning.
