Pantone announced its colors of the year for 2021: PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating. Selecting two colors for only the second time in 22 years, Pantone described the chosen yellow and gray as independent but complementary, representing a theme of unity and mutual support. Whereas PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating is bright and vivacious, PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray is firm and dependable, the marriage of which represents strength, optimism, and fortitude following a markedly challenging year. In architecture, this palette combining playfulness and solemnity has been used in social spaces, domestic spaces, care spaces, and more to communicate similar themes of resilience and positivity.
I could not fail to consider this choice of Pantone and so I would like to propose, in a series of posts, some macro-photographs of the “Lacer / Actions” project relating precisely to yellow and gray, both in their unity and as individual colors. The first images dedicated to yellow and gray are taken from the “The Land Rover Mapping” project and collection that I developed thanks to the collaboration of Simon Barton (Bartons Garage, Chilwell, Nottingham UK) and Marysia Zipser of ACT Art Culture Tourism (Beeston, Nottingham, UFK).
