One of Isaac Newton's many great insights was that color perception could only occur through the interaction of radiant energy with your visual system. That is, all measurements of colour require some type of standard human observer in order to specify colour. This seminar will provide an overview of some of the characteristics of the "standard observer" and nonstandard observers in terms of colour specification and their perception.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
