Color Walking: http://www.radiolab.org/story/214709-color-walk/ The article, “Color Walking,” written by Phia Bennin and Brendan McMullan, is about an experiment that gives the reader a new insight about colors and their environment. In the introduction of this article, the authors tell the reader about how William Burroughs discovered a concept to inspire his students. The idea is pretty simple, just walk outside and pick a color that catches your eye. Once that color catches your eye; start following it and watch your surroundings pop as you watch where it takes you. This experiment can make you look at someone’s hair color, to someone’s shoes, which really makes a person feel more in tune with their environment. The experiment created by Burroughs is a very easy experiment to test and can be very exviting and fun. The authors shared their personal experience by testing it out in WYNC, in lower Manhattan on a Sunday afternoon. However, they didn’t stick to just one color, they switched colors regularly because it was leading then to other colors. One color that kept leading them other colors was various shades of blue. Also, they state how the experiment left the colors hung in their brains and eyes to leave them with a memory of what they saw. Lastly, the authors explain in detail how the colors they seen seemingly had a lasting effect on them. Seeing colors and following them can show people things that they never really noticed was in front of them and bring them to new places....

Reading Summary 6 Color Walking

In RadioLab’s article called “Color Walking” by Phia Bennin and Brendan McMullan, they encourage people to observe a specific color each day and see where it takes them. Going day by day, we tend to ignore the vibrant colors around us and do not notice how these colors can be connected to form the beautiful masterpiece that the world is. When people make a conscious effort to notice these colors and their connections, the world becomes a more interesting place and one’s perspective of their environment is subject to change. Sumner, Thomas. “Why Some Rainbows Are All Red.” Science News. N.p., 18 Dec. 2015. Web. 09 Mar. 2016. <https://www.sciencenews.org/article/why-some-rainbows-are-all-red>. In the podcast called “Color” by RadioLab, they discuss how the ability of sight is different in various species and even in different people. The majority of humans are trichromatic, meaning that they have three cones in order to see color: blue, green, and red. These three cones and the combination of them allow us to see millions of shades of colors. However, there are some women that are tetra chromatic, meaning that they have a yellow cone in addition to the other three cones.This is possible because women have an XX chromosome, so all women are born with the potential ability to have four active cones; although, in most women the fourth cone is not active. The interesting thing about this discovery of the active fourth cone is that these that tetra chromatic women can be found by doing a DNA test. However, when these women are found, few of them actually see the slight differences in colors that...

Exterior Environment #5: Signage use

I took a picture of this sign because it depicts how “set” things are at Stone Mountain. Trails are very neatly cut out and signs surround them warning the users of the dangers and (sometimes) fees they may receive for going off the trail. In a way, when you think about it, is all of the park really open to the general public? Or are we limited to certain areas within the park and being excluded from what lies off the...
