"It should be clear by now that our way of studying color does not start with the past - neither with works of the past nor with its theories.
As we begin principally with the material, color itself, and its action and interaction as registered in our minds, we practice first and mainly a study of ourselves.
Thus, we replace looking backward by looking first at ourselves and our surroundings, and replace retrospection with introspection."
- Josef Albers
