Summertime Lumière

"WE MUST SUCCEED IN FIXING COLORS."

Summertime Lumière

Summer is here, so we can finally embrace our fresh interactive experience using WebGL. In a dream-like virtual world, we travel in the colors of the past throughout the aesthetics by Lumière brothers.

SIMPLICITY AND USERS

On June 10, 1907 in Paris, France, Louis Jean Lumière and Auguste Marie Nicolas Lumière demonstrated the autochrome, the first commercially available colour process, to a specially selected audience of 600 (artists, writers, politicians, the press and photographers). The autochrome was the first colour process that was simple enough to be mastered by all competent photographers, not just by its inventors the Lumières.

ASPIRATIONS FINE ARTS

The Lumière's technique was based on the fundamentals of color theory. All colors are modifications of the colors of the spectrum. The color will absorb the rays of its complement, but the rays of other colors will pass through it. The eye mixed color better than the hand: the effects of optical synthesis were seventy-one times more luminous than those created by the actual mixing of two colors on a palette. The Impressionist technique of juxtaposing myriad dots of colors with one another in order to create luminous vibrations, was the technique of the autochrome.
