The Influence of Color and Illumination on the Interpretation of Emotions.
Kohn, Imre Ransome
Research is presented that is derived from the hypothesis that a person's interpretation of emotional stimulus is affected by the painted hue and the light intensity of the visual environment. The reported experiment proved in part a null hypothesis; it was suggested that, within the considered variables of the experiment, either a person's interpretation of emotions is not affected by the environment, or variables not accounted for in the experiment may have influenced the results. A review of literature pertinent to the topic, indications for further research, and a bibliography are included. (JD)
