Light, Darkness and Colours, a documentary film

Light, Darkness and Colours, is a documentary film that “uses Goethe’s colour theory as a springboard through which the film takes us on a journey through the universe of colours. We see how colours arise and ‘behave’, and how we perceive them and are influenced by them. Individual phenomena are explained in laboratory demonstrations, then shown in nature, in landscapes, changing seasons, fields of flowers, skies and bird’s feathers.”

I have no connection to this company but really enjoyed this film. Sharing Goethe’s prism experiments is one of my favorite things. It doesn’t work so well on Zoom, so if we can’t do it in person, this is the next best thing.

About & Contact

Pamela Whitman

Pamela Whitman received her B.S. from MIT, where she studied both science and humanities. She has always sought ways to integrate these perspectives, and her work has spanned both fields, including helping to found a Waldorf School. Through Waldorf education she discovered Anthroposophy, which eventually led her to her true vocation: pioneering the artistic and therapeutic work of Liane Collot d’Herbois. She participated in the second international training in Light, Color and Darkness Painting Therapy at the Emerald Foundation in The Hague, Holland, and completed her requirements as a Painting Therapist as part of her Masters degree program in Human Development. She received her certification in Painting Therapy from the Section for Anthroposophic Medicine at the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland. Her career and interests span the fields of science, art, spirituality, consciousness, psychology, healing and education, all of which she incorporates as a therapist, international adult educator, mentor and painter.
