In visual perception a color is almost never seen as it really is – as it physically is. This fact makes color the most relative medium in art…. Practical exercises demonstrate through color deception (illusion) the relativity and instability of color. And experience teaches that in visual perception there is a discrepancy between physical fact and psychic effect.” – Josef Albers in Interaction of Color, London 2006, pp. 1-2
