Color Composer

The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art asked how they might use a touchscreen to emulate the synesthesia (seeing sound and hearing color) of featured painter Wassily Kandinsky. So we invented the Color Composer.

Inspired by his painting "Rose with Gray", Color Composer allows users to construct digital paintings using a distinct color palette and automatically applied Kandinsky-esque effects.

 Once a user presses play, the composition becomes an animated soundscape, fusing sound and vision. The user can continually edit their composition by moving and scaling shapes or creating new ones.

Both the kiosk and a corresponding online experience were created from the ground up, including custom interactions, unique sounds for each shape, and its own animated branding. Try it here.
