I Can't Show You How Pink This Pink Is

  • Published on Jul 18, 2017
  • I can show a brighter pink. I can show a more saturated pink. But I can't show you this pink. Not quite. More about Stuart Semple and his pigments: www.culturehustle.com/ [that's his store, we overloaded Stuart's personal web site, www.stuartsemple.com, within a few minutes...!]
    (I reached out to Anish Kapoor's studio twice for comment; I didn't get any response.)

    Colour grading this video was a nightmare! I've got as close as I can to the real colour - Stuart gave me a small pot of the pigment to take home! - but it's just not quite there. It's not more saturated, it's not brighter, it's just... a tiny bit more pink, somehow.

      It is both more saturated and brighter. Why would you think it isnt? Unless its radioactive, those two things are exactly what is captured by 10-12bit color screens with high nits. AKA HDR wide gamut

    Stuart Semple's is a precious, incredible, true gift to the world and must be protected at all cost. Anish Kapoor, on the other hand, can go impale himself on a phallic shaped rock of molten lava.
