Color Theory in Motion:

Artists and architects have long studied the effects color have on human perception. Cool colors tend to appear farther away or ‘recede’ which make spaces feel larger or longer. Warm colors appear closer or ‘advance’ which make spaces feel smaller or shorter. The projects above, by Softlab and Olafur Eliasson, are interesting examples of this phenomena. Cool colors precede warm colors which foreshortens the space and alters the viewers procession and spacial understanding of the respective corridors. Although movement is not physically affected, the viewers comprehension of time is compressed as they move through the space.
