Perspectives of appreciating things often reflect perceptions of the world. The line drawn between fascination and repulsion varies depending on the perspectives of art, philosophy, and nature. What is it that governs our aesthetic perspectives?
Visually speaking, fascination is often associated with particular forms, such as colours and rays of light. The reason why we are fascinated by colorful illuminations is that colours influence our mood and psychological status. Blue calms, green energizes, while purple honors. What do different colours mean to you?
The secret behind fascination is exactly what SALON11 would like to invite you to explore this season. On this journey into the world of glamour and darkness, join our honorable guests from multiple disciplines: a psychologist, an art therapist, color specialist, and the director of film-making brand Lomography.
*Will be conducted in Cantonese.
