Can (CM)YKB 98, 84, 0, 0, be considered as a program rather than a color?
Refering to a conversation between Krogdal, Haraldsdottir and Ingemansson on using a flower as a architectural generator we distinguished between seeing the flower as a shape and the flower as a program, where the later intrigued us more since the investigation and process appeared more open-ended. Could this be the case for YK:s work with the color blue as well?
Reading about International Klein Blue, this caught my attention: "While it is often said that the method for creating International Klein Blue was patented by the artist, this is not entirely true. Klein's patent had little to do with the chemical composition of the color, instead describing a method by which Klein was able to distance himself from the physical creation of his paintings by remotely directing models covered in the color."
Even thought YK "structured" these paintings (the color), he was in a way, similar to how we talk about involving the flow of people and trains, letting the context, in his way the models, control the work.
