These limited editions Moleskin notebooks were inspired by Eugen Batz, a student of Vasily Kandinsky who taught the color class at Bauhaus. Kandinsky was interested in the effects of color beyond its first physical response in the eye. He developed a questionnaire to demonstrate the inner/emotional/universal connection between the primary colors and the forms. Majority of his students choose the same pairs by connecting the attributes of the shapes with the meanings of the primary colors. This is the questionnaire.
To develop universal laws of design to be applied to spatial relations and visual language was the primary interest of Kandinsky.
An exhibit ” Kandinsky at the Bauhaus 1922-1933″ is currently on view at Guggenheim.
