Troika : ‘Irma Watched Over By Machines’ (2019)

Once a camera has recorded an image in this way, and to then obtain a usable full colour image that mimics what the human eye sees, algorithms in the camera or in the computer interpolate the red, green and blue values for each pixel. The strangely green hue of the paintings is the result of there are being twice as many green pixels compared to red or blue, a method to counter the greater sensitivity to green light of the human eye.
We thus created an acrylic paint palette of 16 gradual colours of red, green and blues (48 colours in total), from dark to light. If downsampled – as the computer sees 256 shades of each – our palette very closely approximate computer colours. A Hi-fi paint version.
