RGB Colorspace Atlas by Tauba Auerbach

20120906-222401.jpg

Created by Tauba Auerbach is the 8 x 8 x 8-inch hard-back book illustrating the RGB gradient in a page-by-page format. Using a digital offset print on paper with airbrushed cloth cover, the book shows the full gradient of blue axis offset. The special binding was co-designed by the artist herself in collaboration with Daniel E. Kelm, and were printed at Wide Awake Garage, an independent bookbinder, with help from Leah Hughes.

Below is also the simulation of one of the books (blue axis) showing the all 3632 pages.

      Quite postmodern: beautiful and empty!

      How did they deal with the differences in gamut? If they haven’t then it’s a pretty much empty gesture…
