The colour of
For this project, I focused on my favourite colour (black). I always saw the colour black as a sad colour, which represented death but this isn´t the case for everyone. The colour black has different meanings in different cultures. In my cultural settings only specific people like goths would wear this colour or you would wear it to a funeral. Because of this I almost never wore black in my liffe. The older I got the more I realized there are some 'social rules' like funerals but in day to day life you could just wear what you want.
With this project, I want to show how the colour black can be interpreted depending on the cultural setting. Linked to this is the symbolic meaning of the bat, which represents not only death, but also rebirth. I find it interesting and beautiful to discover that this animal, which many people fear, is used to symbolize such important events in human life.
I made a lifecycle to visualize my discoveries and show how I interpreted this colour for me.
