Marijke Bongers
01:12:41
I heard about mummy brown in a television show about making replica's of art in the Netherlands, but I must look at it again now! Thank you Kassia!
Serah Hedin
01:12:49
Thanks so much. So nice to hear you speak about your passion for colour and history. My question is random. I made some naturally dyed fabric swatches for you and would love to know how you ended up using them :D
Carlyn Nelson
01:12:57
Truly Facinating!

I feel like I am in college again!
Tatiana Verdon
01:13:22

Brenda Osborn
01:13:39
The Golden Thread has the most beautiful cover I’ve ever seen!
Rachel May
01:13:41
A wonderfully informative presentation. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Kassia’s imparts her knowledge of the subject matter in a delightful way.
Laurie Clark
01:13:45
Fabulous! Right in my wheelhouse. I could totally geek out on this topic. I am the daughter of a PhD in inorganic chemistry who worked for DuPont in the 1950s and patented a red dye that was less transient
Jenine Shereos
01:13:47
So fascinating, thank you!
Joan Harrison
01:13:51
WOW WOW WOW….Hope this is a safe place to admit a dark secret of mine…a few years ago I travelled to the UK to perform a concerto with an orchestra - before the dress rehearsal I popped into a book store and found your books…bought them and started reading outside the shop….I was late for my own rehearsal ! When I came home I realized that these books were the highlight of my trip…life-changing for me and I have made a side step in my career…COVID, helped, of course…thank you so much for this fascinating research!! I am using it in democracy and social justice classes I teach now!! :)
Katie Smith
01:13:58
Tatiana--check out YinMin blue (YnMn)...
SEMIAH MCGILL
01:14:00
Q: as pigments go, does YinMn blue appear to be a suitable modern alternative to ultramarine?
Danila Rumold
01:14:13
I’m most fascinated about your uncovering of politics and color, specifically the story of white and how it was used for white washing and unseen notions of white supremacy. Can you talk a little about about how you were able to uncover this story?
Sue Crook
01:14:29
Enjoyed the talk, thanks. They book is great and not at all boring. I read in no time at all.
Cheryl Cady
01:15:06
Wonderful talk, thank you!
Katrine Pate
01:15:09
what has happened to all the objects made with arsenic green? Is the wallpaper still in houses?

01:15:12
Thanks for a wonderfully interesting presentation, I have the French version of the book, la vie secrète des couleurs
Carl Stewart
01:15:15
Fabulous talk, thank you. Was ultramarine ever used as a pigment for cloth?
Sherry Fillman
01:15:25
Extremely interesting. Thank you so much!
Rachel May

Going to give the book to some friends for Easter! Can’t wait.
Tatiana Verdon
01:15:26
Do you think new materials / chemistry will bring new colours? Mars rocks?
Apurva Srihari
01:15:47
Hi Kassia I don’t have any questions but just to say that I’m a HUGE fan of both of your books. “The golden thread’ has always been a constant source of inspiration for me.
Sara Jeanne Burke
01:16:01
Fascinating presentation; your research is so in depth. I just ordered both of your books.

Rosanne Latimer
01:16:45
most interesting. thank you.
Katie Smith
01:17:09
Katrine--wallpaper with arsenic is still around (just like lead white paint on walls). It's also found in old book cloth covers--libraries have to check sometimes and keep the books non-circulating because of their arsenic content.
Janet Barbieri
01:17:11
Thank you for such an interesting presentation! Adds to your excellent book on Colour!
Karin Heijink
01:17:41
great presentation, I enjoyed both your books (audio books) and am looking forward to a next one
Katrine Pate
01:17:57
Thanks, Katie!
Katie Smith
01:18:16
Katrine--no problem. I should say it's old wallpaper--new wallpaper has no arsenic in it...
Cynthia Christie
01:18:21
Do you know the book of Victoria Finlay who wrote from a travel perspective a book “Color: a Natural History” and another book on gems and where they are found?

Angela Adams
01:19:11
Are you aware of an effort off the coast of Oaxaca to sustainably harvest the pigment for Tyrion Purple?

SEMIAH MCGILL

Maggie Simonelli
01:22:44
WHAT ABOT ANISH KAPOORS BLACK ?
Cynthia Hickey
01:22:49
The black is called Vantablack. Vantablack is composed of a forest of vertical tubes "grown" on a substrate using a modified chemical vapor deposition process. When light strikes Vantablack, instead of bouncing off, it becomes trapped and is continually deflected amongst the tubes, eventually becoming absorbed and dissipating into heat.
Joan Harrison
01:22:51
Is Pernambuco still being used to make colour?
Lynne Swearingen
01:22:56
Is YinMn blue commercially available?
Bonnie Levinthal
01:23:04
I was just going to ask about that
Eileen Adler
01:23:33
Thank you. So interesting. Feedback Fridays are a highlight of my week.
Katie Smith
01:23:42
