Alber’s Interaction of Color as an app

August 6, 2013

In 1963, Josef Albers, a painter and instructor at the Weimar and Dessau Bauhaus, published1673122-inline-750-albers a classic text on design and art education called Interaction of Color. For Albers, Interaction of Color was more than a text — it was a handbook and teaching aid for artists, instructors and students. In honor of its 50th anniversary, Yale University Press has released an app for the iPad that visualizes Alber’s book as an interactive teaching tool along the lines of what Albers originally intended.
