Why do colors exist in the world? That’s what Phoebe wants to know. The answer might change how you think about the colors that you see! Neuroscientist and artist Bevil Conway bends our minds and our eyes, to show us how colors are the ultimate optical illusion. We’ll discover what color is made of, why even plants can “see” color, and what color can tell us about how our brains work. Take out your coloring supplies and prepare for a color journey.
Want to learn why we choose our favorite colors, or if the red I see is the same as the red you see? Listen to our bonus interview episode with Bevil, available on Patreon ad-free feed. Just pledge $1 a month or more to support the show, at patreon.com/tumblepodcast.
We’ll have free resources about the science of color on the blog on our website at sciencepodcastforkids.com.
