Colour Controversy

I often have "discussions" with my wife over the designation of particular colours, particularly the colour of the paint in our sitting room which I say is grey and she says is light blue. Have some mindless clicking fun this Friday afternoon with Colour Controversy, a site that serves you up a colour and asks you to pick from two possible answers. The percentage answers are shown after you pick, and you can even see a leaderboard of the most controversial colours!

Title Cities

Artist and web designer Nicholas Rougeux created a fantasticly creative project called Title Cities, where he converts text on the covers of historic books with blocks of colours, and then extracts and rearranges these blocks into cityscape posters.

Everyting Is Going To Be OK

Artist Allan McCollum produced an online exhibition that showcases the trope of reassurance in TV & Film with variation of the phrase "Everything is going to be OK". The series is called "An Ongoing Collection ofScreengrabs With Reassuring Subtitles" however a lot of the scenes depicted don't suggest reassurance, despite the dialogue. Perhaps that's the point.
