Northborough, MA’s Boguslawa Czarnecka has had her art featured in galleries across the nation, but her true passion is sharing the joy of art with others. This is why she started Color Coded Art, Inc., a business based on providing customers with personalized, custom art pieces.
Each Color Coded Art, Inc. piece employs a unique, color-coded system to create highly original custom art. Regardless of the style of work requested, the artist will use a series of distinctive colors to convey the message you desire. So, although each color coded pieces of art are completely unique, their color sequencing links them all together.
Traditionally, language is used as a system for communicating. Visual art is created to be appreciated primarily for its beauty or emotional power. It is very difficult to extract close meaning particularly from nonrepresentational art since colors are not intended to provide information of any kind. As of today, the use of colors to convey information is very limited.
Boguslawa Czarnecka takes an innovative approach to advance use of colors as another communication system. Her organized method for the communication of messages by encoding and decoding with a set of colors is exceedingly desired as it offers added value especially with respect to customized artwork.
The color coded method for communication uses the juxtaposition of discrete colors in sequence to convey a strong message. This method was defined and remains unique to Color Coded Art, Inc. The following descriptions below in combination with the figures is provided to assist in understanding of the color coding method.
Illustrates encryption of the word COLOR wherein:
1- Blue (RGB: (0, 0, 255)) corresponds to letter “C”
2- Cyan (RGB: (0, 255, 255)) corresponds to letter “O”
3- Yellow (RGB: (255, 255, 0)) corresponds to letter “L”
4- Red (RGB: (255, 0, 0) corresponds to letter “R”
It is an expression of word “COLOR”, and the colors were assigned to letters based on the English alphabet.
As shown in FIG. 1, a unique color can be assigned to a specific letter/character to express information. All discrete colors (Blue, Cyan, Yellow and Red) are adjacent
to each other in a sequence to form the word COLOR.
Illustrates encryption of the word CODED wherein:
1- Blue is assigned to letter “C”
2- Cyan corresponds to letter “O”
5- Orange corresponds to letter “D”
6- Green corresponds to letter “E”
7- Black was not assigned to an alphabetical letter and grants the background of the picture.
Color or colors which are not assigned to any characters can be used to separate words/sentences and create a background. The background is defined as all the other colors that are not assigned to any characters and can appear in any order and shape.
Illustrates encryption of the word ART wherein:
8- maroon corresponds to letter “A”
4- Red corresponds to letter “R”
9- white corresponds to letter “T”
As shown in this particular example, the sequence of juxtaposed colors may be defined by the border length of adjacent colors. The longer the border, the more preferential the direction of the sequence is. Border length is defined as the border between adjacent colors.
Expression- 1 “LOVE”
In summary, the presentation explains a method for communication, and particularly a system of communication by using the juxtaposition of discrete colors in sequence to convey a message. Although the preferred examples of the method have been illustrated, various modifications are possible.
