Fabulous! Wonderful and so informational!
notes on colour
What do the small stars on the bottles notate?
klein blue? in use today?
fantastic presentation, thank you!
Thank you. Excellent
Thank you soooo much! I was wondering if you had any advice on what to study for how to get into this type of work?
what percentage of these colors are no longer available
so cool to know Porfirrio has contributed pigment and material to that collection!!
Thank You for this history!
Hi there, thanks for a fascinating talk. Do you use the Colour Index to classify your colours at all?
What a great presentation! Thank you.
Is any part of the Forbes Collection available to view online?
very informative. Thanks for sharing it.
thank you so much!
Did you analyze the Pollack from the film about his painting?
Amazing work! Thank you. What has been your favorite color to date and why?
Curious as to what kind of bark the senior Australian artist was painting on, if you recall.
What was the typical vehicle used with the pigments? Walnut oil? Egg yolk for Europe, but how about in the Middle East or other areas?
Are there concerns that the release of the atlas of Aborigine ochres might lead to pigment theft/poaching or damage of sacred sites, or is the hope that this will help protect these spaces?
I'm surprised at the amount of light in that room! Is the light source filtered in some way to be safe for the pigments or is that not a concern for pigments in that state.
do you have any colors that are made from rusts?
I was just watching Porfirio over on the Selvedge World Fair this morning!
Thank you so much. Amazing
Does the Forbes Collection study Bacterial Pigments?
Thanks so much!
Wow! I cannot wait until the museum re-opens. I especialy love the malachite colors AND the story of Indian Yellow (derived from dried urine from cows fed solely on mango leaves.) Thanks, all, so interesting!
is the collection of pigments in use by artists and or conservators?
so wonderful... I visited some years ago with a colleague from the Wiess Institute. beautiful presentation
Amazing information, really opens my eyes. Thank you!
Do you often get asked to identify forgeries?
So interesting....Thank you!
You showed a picture of orpiment that had faded. How do you mitigate light damage on these pigments? Especially when they surrounded by glass?
What indigo resources does the COllection have
How does an artist approach you to contribute to your collection, if he or she is experimenting with some new medium or natural pigment.
Excellent presentation thank you
What type of work with growers does the program do?
Are you familiar with the work of John Sabraw, collecting runoff ?
Thank you Narayan for that answer!
There is growing interest in questions of cultural appropriation in craft. How has thinking about these kinds of questions evolved in the world of pigments? (And thanks so much for the presentation.)
I thought I saw something about ochre being radioactive. Could you speak a bit more about that?
Terrific presentation. Thank you!
is the MIT an organic black colour or an inorganic black what is being used for currently?
Is the Forbes collection interested in regional-specific contributions from ochre foragers, or small-batch lakes made by individual artists?
Can you ask about indigo research and ork with dye growing experimentsWere they involved in Aztec Blue research
^ I think the blackest black it is based on carbon nanotubes (organic) but correct me if im wrong
Vantablack is made from carbon nanotubes, yes.
Q: Fascinating. What’s next? Generally, what are a couple additional large collaborations the Collection might take on next?
How were mineral pigments made into dyes for the Kvadrat fabrics?
Such an amazing collection and body of work that you and your colleagues undertake. Thanks so much for this overview!
Clay is a particle size. Sand and silt are other sizes
Seeing the paintings in the collection and relating them to the collection was amazing and eye-opening.
