The Way I See It


MUSE Magazine January 2022. An eye-opening look at how vision and perception work. Check out how the shortcuts we use to see can trick the eye, learn about the history of camouflage and caricature, and catch a glimpse of the amazing protective transparent eyelids of birds.

Color us impressed with this edition of MUSE Magazine. Get to know how colors work, what they represent, and what they can tell us about our world.


From the (accidental) invention of mauve to history’s lack of a word for blue, you’ll spin the color wheel and learn something new with every (page) turn. Reveal the true colors of light, pigments, and dyes, see how we color the universe, uncover the psychology of colors, and discover if there is such a thing as a black flower.
