Limited Capacity seats available

This talk will focus on the relationship between colors and disgust drawing on the analytical data gathered as part of the research project ERC Advanced Grant FilmColors. 

To represent and evoke disgust films need to translate the perception mode from an aesthetics of reception to a bodily aesthetics of immediate reaction. Disgusting materials such as feces, vomit, decaying food or corpses often share material properties that are located between a solid and liquid state. Based on the FilmColors database, the talk offers a diachronic overview on the way film colors have been functional in the (re)presentation of disgust.
