“. . . . I’m someone who is very passionate about the things we create
and how they are reflections of our brain , of who we are
In January 2007 i started grijs
a weblog on design , to share my passion for beauty
. . . . a number of events lead me to name my web space grijs
the most important one : a photograph in a newspaper the day after 9-11-2001
It was a picture of the collapsed twin towers seen from above in colour.
What fascinated me in that picture was how beautiful those colours were.
How they all blended into each other. To become one , but you could still retrace the different colors
+ I thought it was important to highlight the colour grey not just as a colour
but also as a concept , a way of thinking , to be subtle
The grey then was a mid grey , i’ve now moved on to a lighter grey
a grey that is almost transcendent.
This partly explains why i love grey
My guess is that sensory sensitive brains like these colors because they are
of low impact .
At least my brain feels at best surrounded by grey tones.”
