Abstract

Almost always when it comes to the end of a trip, to rethink and remember the places visited, the first memo to emerge is that chromatic. Certainly many other factors populate memories, such as climate, mood, company, health, etc., but light and color are the elements that most strongly identify spaces and selects them according to “favorable” or “unfavorable” perceptions, unconsciously privileging a “chromatic territory” over others, characterized by the effects it produces or by the simple aesthetic value, where shapes, light and colors have nicely marked the journey. The author also wants to propose; through a series of sketches and drawings; a sequence of color images made by the author on a journey of more than 6000 km; between the major North American metropolises in New York; Washington; Chicago; Boston; Philadelphia; Buffalo; Cleveland; etc.; and the small centers that together represent a genuine universe of colors whose properties manifest themselves physically; perceptively; and physiologically.
