Acceptable Boundaries of Change

Brighton: blue door

How does our appreciation and the ‘value’ of colour coordination change when objects and surfaces that can change colour, shape or texture? In what contexts will the door owner wish to maintain a blue door? What are the advantages to temporarily changing it to something else? Given the role of shapes and colours in helping us orientate the world around us, to what extent will extreme shifts in either be governed by local laws? How will the scale of acceptable shifts differ according the culture? Or neighbourhood? This is door is located in the North Laines Conservation Area – with its own rules for acceptable changes.
