TIME TO RECONNECT
In this issue of Viewpoint Colour, we explore Mind, Body, Soul and how they interconnect both on a personal and a collective level.
The turbulent era we are all living through has taken a heavy toll, mentally, physically and spiritually, over the past few years. An unprecedented combination of pandemic, financial turmoil and global instability has adversely affected everyone and everything.
In Viewpoint Colour #12 we consider how the healing process can progress, both for individuals and our relationship with the planet, as we collectively seek reassurance from something bigger than ourselves, and shore up our physical and mental resources, in order to take care of both ourselves and the world around us.
Whether it’s the lamp by your bedside, a flashing neon sign, or the sun’s own rays, light holds an undeniable healing power. Blending the digital with the physical and emotional, these designers are tapping into the potency of light and colour to create restorative spaces.
KEY COLOUR STATEMENTS
It’s all about extremes: from transient, intangible pastels to shape-shifting psychedelics, raw organic pigments, and digitised hyper nature. Here, colour is a key tool in deepening our relationship to our own humanity and the environment.
VISUAL ESSAY 1: MIND & BODY ENTWINED
In this visual essay, The Earth Issue has collaborated with three self-care practitioners who hold the mind-body connection at the heart of their work. Each of them shares their wisdom.
As life’s twists and turns can bring a feeling of reality or of uprooting, the idea or physicality of home can keep us grounded. Bringing belonging, recalibration, and an opportunity for nurture, the home offers us a space to be, feel, and heal.
VISUAL ESSAY 2: WEARABLE WELL-BEING
Combining comfort, utility, and function, a new era of wearable applications behaves like second skins. With equal focus on function and form, we’re seeing a move away from faddish, short-lived fashion to timeless garments that can be incorporated into everyday wear.
The recently recognised healing powers of blue are being harnessed by the Fam social innovation studio, in an innovative initiative that helps designers support young people’s mental health and alleviate anxiety around the climate emergency.
PANTONE COLOUR OF THE YEAR 2023
