Nick Kurczewski recently interviewed me about the evolution of color vision. As you know, I believe it’s all about emotion, and skin.
And in our modern culture, we’re often displaying colors not on our naked skin as we’re “supposed” to, but on the artifacts we cover ourselves with, like our clothing.
…and our cars.
Nick Kurczewski’s story concerns car colors, and appeared here in Road and Track.
