I Can't Show You How Pink This Pink Is

  • Published on: 18 July 2017
  • I can show a brighter pink. I can show a more saturated pink. But I can't show you this pink. Not quite. More about Stuart Semple and his pigments: https://www.culturehustle.com/ [that's his store, we overloaded Stuart's personal web site, http://www.stuartsemple.com, within a few minutes...!]

    (I reached out to Anish Kapoor's studio twice for comment; I didn't get any response.)

    Colour grading this video was a nightmare! I've got as close as I can to the real colour - Stuart gave me a small pot of the pigment to take home! - but it's just not quite there. It's not more saturated, it's not brighter, it's just... a tiny bit more pink, somehow.

    I had already heard about Pinkest Pink and the whole story around it before watching this, and honestly, I don't think I would've watched this video if I hadn't.

    A Matrox Parhelia 512 (10 bits color per channel) connected to a CRT monitor may do the trick.

    As a thought, can this now be picked up by HDR cameras and displays? Is it possible to re-do the experiment to see if it can now be correctly displayed with newer technology?

    It's like, how much more pink could this be? And the answer is none. None more pink.

    Many people have 10-bit screens now— even on laptops and mobile devices, which are billions not millions of colors— and often calibrated and DCI, ProPhoto or HDR compliant at that. My screen, which is 12-per channel, meaning about 68 billion colors— which is more than the screen pixels even at 8K.

    I feel like a 10bit HDR panel on most flagship phones would be able to display this pink assuming that the rest of the chain also supported 10bit HDR. Same for 10bit HDR monitors and TV's which are fairly cheap now.I guess 2017 was a different time.

    And this will age well because when we do watch this with a screen that can display it, we still won't be sure without buying it to check.
