The Power of Color: Book

SMSM – Sasa [44], MeeNa Park, Sulki & Min – is an “applied art collective devoted to the notion of health and happiness.” Their Health Center Project, which was inspired by the color therapy theory of Dr. Morton Walker, is documented in the first 32 pages with essays by Hong-hee Kim, Geun-jun Lim and Kyung-hwan Yeo. The rest of the book is made simply of different kinds of colored paper, with no information except brief quotations from Dr. Walker’s book The Power of Color (1991) on the alleged physiological effects of different colors: try to feel the power for yourself! The cover pays homage to both Dr. Walker’s book and Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon (1973).

Published in conjunction with SMSM’s work of the same name, commissioned by Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art as its Handspan Gallery Health Center Project, 2009. With essays by Hong-hee Kim and Geun-jun Lim.
