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've been frustrated all my life because all the paints can't even get close to the spectrum of color I see

    I'm only interested in yellow. It's the most vivid of all things.

    I see pink. I don’t understand. Looks pink too me. What are we suppose to see? I literally seriously see pink

    My father has a 10 bit display but I don’t think this video was shot in 10bit nor uploaded in it.

    Your screen can't be bright enough (or dark enough), to show you some colors. Saying "pink" enough is a bit misleading.

    Why not put some "regular pink" color next to it, so we can compare?
