The Colour in the 1920s project
9 December 2015
Sarah Street has submitted her final project report to Leverhulme for Colour in the 1920s: Cinema and its Intermedial Contexts. This project investigated the major spheres of colour expression in commercial and experimental motion pictures of the 1920s. Taking cinema as the galvanizing focus, it contextualised colour's intermedial role in other arts - including commercial and print culture; fashion and industry; theatre and the performing arts. The team is producing a fully comprehensive, comparative and interdisciplinary study of the impact of colour during a decade of profound social, economic and cultural change. The project team consisted of Street as PI, Dr Josh Yumibe (St Andrews) as Co-Investigator and two post-doctoral researchers, Dr Victoria Jackson and Dr Bregt Lameris.
