Awesome new website — Play with it!

21 Mar

The Color Of is a website that peruses Flickr and tries to find the color of an abstract word based on the images associated with that word.

Naturally, the first thing I typed in was the color of “love.” Here’s what I got:

Second, I tried the slightly more abstract (I frankly didn’t know if anything would turn up) “Jaclyn.” I kind of dig that I’m the same color as “love,” but with more earthy greens and sages.

So let’s see if everything is that color. “Murder,” anyone?

Hm. I’m sensing a theme. “Murder” looks more like “Jaclyn” than “love” (eep!) OK, one more: “wanderlust.”

I have to admit, I’m intrigued by the subtleties of each image, but I was hoping for more drastic differences. Ah, well. What word did you look up? How does it compare to my tests?

    I did “Hawaii” – lovely! Then I did “Summer” – lots of yellow hues. Then “Ally” – it was very similar to “wanderlust” – yikes! 😉

    It’s true, the color theme seems to be very similar with lots of words. I tried out book related words such as writer, books, The Hunger Games, etc and btw Jaclyn and the Hunger Games are a pretty close match too :-D!

I'd love to hear what you think!
