Getting in touch... with greyness

VideoAlicia VelazquezComment

Is the lack of color in our cities a conscious decision or do we accept it by default?

While traveling, and especially during moments of transit, I have often observed how grey our (built) environment is. Sidewalks, roads, facades, benches, fences, walls, floor finishes. You name it.

I am not so interested in knowing why or where this greyness comes from. Rather, bring it up front, realize how little color surrounds us, and what are the possible effects in our body and wellbeing. 

My invitation through this video is to become aware of color, or the lack of it.

I would love to hear back from YOU: what is your experience about greyness in the city?
