Sabroso Shot #22 - The Colour of Motion

The Colours of Motion is a project by a designer named Charlie Clark.

Simply put, Charlie takes the average colour of every frame of a movie, and then creates a mini-poster of those colours, meaning that each movie gets its own unique colour genome.

It's fascinating to dig through. I found myself having expectations about certain movies, and then thinking 'oh right, yeah of course, the 30 minute sequence where everything turned bright blue' (see the header image for more info).

I think this project is great because it creates a new kind of art based on an already-incredible piece of art.

(And I also like that Charlie has been able to sustain the project by turning the colour palates into posters, which he sells on the site).
