Configurations of Colours and Spatial Forms

  • Stanisław Ossowski


When we evaluate a configuration of sensory elements of different quality and do not disregard quality relations, a relativization of both these factors takes place, i.e., both of the value of the configuration and of the sensory qualities. The value of the configuration is then dependent on which elements the configuration has been constructed from, while the value of the individual quality depends on how they have been located. Instead of “purer” spatial forms we now have configurations of colour patches, instead of “ purer ” rhythm a monodic melody or one based on consonance.
