Local Coloring and Regional Identity:

Kjellström, Richard LU (2004) Interim Meeting of the International Color Association
Abstract
The project's main thesis is to verify the existence of local colours and colouring. The research is done in the rural areas of southern Sweden at dwellings from the 19th century. The results are supposed to show the different kind of colours used and to indicate orders for how the colours were combined during different times and in various geographical areas. To find out of the local traditional coloring could be a way to strengthen the identity of regions. The introducing research had the main aim to identify geographical areas adequate to our criteria for the building objects This resulted in four geographical areas for further investigations. The investigations have been made as archival research work, short interviews, colour steps... (More)
The project's main thesis is to verify the existence of local colours and colouring. The research is done in the rural areas of southern Sweden at dwellings from the 19th century. The results are supposed to show the different kind of colours used and to indicate orders for how the colours were combined during different times and in various geographical areas. To find out of the local traditional coloring could be a way to strengthen the identity of regions. The introducing research had the main aim to identify geographical areas adequate to our criteria for the building objects This resulted in four geographical areas for further investigations. The investigations have been made as archival research work, short interviews, colour steps and microscopic analyses of colour sections, which indicates presence of local colours and colouring. To be able to establish the thesis, a deepened research has to be done. Therefor the identified geographical areas will be enlarged with more microscopic analyses of colour sections, partly at new buildings in the areas but also at new building details at already investigated building objects. Through this deepened investigation it's possible to make the results more distinct and reliable. The results will further be the used to recognise orders for the colouring in the regions during the topical time. The orders of colouring will be indicated in the building objects within the project's deliminations, though the results might be applicable to new colourings for different settlements, new and historical.
