Life in Color Squares

I actually had this idea in class itself… and so I didn’t notice the guideline that we were supposed to do something physical…
I thought a lot about this and really wanted to do it which is why I’m posting it. I think it works better as digital format because for the future, I want people to be able to make their own for fun. Basically, it’s kind of like a quilt or a tapestry of squares, each color representing something that could have happened in someone’s life. Of course, my interpretation of colors will be different than someone else’s, which is why I think it’s so personal and interesting to make such a quilt of color squares. For example, notice how for the progression of love, the colors become a darker shade of red as the person grows. Consider ‘warmth’. I wanted a warm color to show that the baby is surrounded by people who love him/her. But for someone else, warmth might be light blue, or bright purple. This was an exploration of what colors could represent.
