Color studies photographic slides, 1970-1979

Identifier: 008.01.07

Hand-made 35 mm slides, presumably used as a teaching aid by Institute of Design in connection color studies. The slides consist of pieces of chromatic cellophane sometimes combined with bits of paper, plant materials, splashes of ink, etc., or manipulated in some way (wrinkled, melted, etc.). The slides were found in two carousels marked "Left 17" and "Right 5." Carousel boxes also read "Unknown presentation. Modern art slides ?," but this appears to be a later addition. Slides were removed from the carousels and placed in two slide boxes in the order in which they were found in the carousels as folows: Box 1 of 2 "Left" Box 2 of 2 "Right." Note: Per John Grimes, ID faculty member, to C. Bruck, April 2009, these are slides he used in the 1970s in classes he taught related to color studies.
