Collective Subconscious of Color and Form

Color and form provide the basic language for every substance on earth. Color and form are also the main language for understanding works of art. In this research, color and form perception in humans is further investigated. Kandinsky, a color theorist, stated that certain colors match a particular shape. He said these matches exist in the perception of the subconscious of every human being. In order to prove this, he conducted an experiment on a number of random subjects in his residence. In this paper, the research that was conducted by Kandinsky was replicated, but the research object was changed to children. This change was made so that the collected data may represent the initial perception of human beings. The goal was to prove Kandinsky’s theory that color and form belong to the initial perception of human beings. By knowing color and field perception, art appreciators can also understand and look at works of art in a different way.
