Apophatic Projection

More optics experiments - today I achieved visual negation!  Starting with a yellow square painted on the wall, I then projected a violet square on top of it (which looks blue in the video).  The resulting color mixture yields a gray-green (which looks positively pea green in the video.  slightly less so in real life, though still not as gray as I'd like... stupid color calibrations).  I then matched that optical color with the color to be projected as a background. 

The result: the yellow square disappears into the background.  Check it out!

After an excellent studio visit with projection mapping guru John Ensor Parker, I'm psyched to continue exploring these projection possibilities!
