The Colours Out of Space

As you can see, I've changed my blog colours - this time, I hope, with some sense of purpose. Yesterday, as part of my graphic design course, Jeff gave me a quick introduction to colour concepts, including the colour wheel, and now the blog uses a triad of primary colours - red, yellow and blue. I leave it to you to decide why I picked those three colours...

Jeff also gave me a homework assignment, and only YOU can help me complete it by looking at the graphic above and answering a series of questions:

1. Name each colour, from 1-6.
2. What emotion does each colour make you feel? E.G. 1 - envy, 2 - desire, 3 - sadness, etc.
3. What specific object (i.e., what noun) does each colour remind you of?
4. How would you use each colour? Or, in other words, what is the purpose of each colour?
5. Name an inappropriate use for each colour.

Please post your answer as a comment, or email me. Your help is greatly appreciated!

Spock: Politeness is a human quality and unecessary. The colours you present are
White (technically a tint)
Black (technically a shade)

Earl: What emotion do they make you feel?
Spock: I experience no emotions.

Earl: What do they remind you of?
Spock: Black; Space - White; my second eyelids - Green; Vulcan blood - Red; Human blood - Yellow; star - Blue; star

Earl: What purpose do they serve?
Spock: Black; meditation, White; Fal tor pan, Green Captain's formal wear, Red; security, Yellow; command, Blue; sciences

Earl: Name an innappropriate use for each colour.
