Testpattern for Colourvision
Single Channel Digital Video Loop
2006

Testpattern for Colourvision is a study on the cultural coding of colour. The work is intended to be screened on a television monitor hanging on a wall and screened as if the pattern were live.

The graphic has an affinity with both television test patterns and colour calibration tools. The colourbars are in a sense a placeholder for the moment between the termination of one kind of transmission and the anticipation of another. Whether to correct or reconcile the colours is, therefore, a choice. Testpattern for Colourvision ultimately launched the thinking behind colourschool.
