Isabel Treste won the competition Prisad Färg with her project As if and had the opportunity to attend the NCS Color Academy course Colour Design Workshop 2018.
During five intense days in June a bunch of color enthusiasts gathered from different parts of the world in Mariefred, including architects, teachers, colorists and artists from, for example, the United States, China and Israel.
– The days were filled with lectures, workshops and conversations about colour, colour and light design. In the evenings we had lovely dinners together and continued the conversation, says Isabell.
At the end of the course, each participant made his own project.
-It was amazing fun to share everyone’s work and to hug ideas with each other and with teachers.
-The course gave me a lot of inspiration on how to use NCS / System as a tool in my design process. I also had a greater desire to work with color and greater understanding of the complexity and possibilities of the color world.
-Together with all the exciting meetings and conversations with participants and teachers, this became clear the summer’s highlight!

The goal of the AIC Student Paper Awards scheme is to encourage students to present their work at the AIC meetings and to benefit from interaction with the international colour community.
Applications must be substantially related to the subject of colour, but may be based in any
discipline or mix of disciplines. Both research-based and practice-based work will be considered.
The AIC Student Paper Awards are for final-year undergraduates and post graduates only and will run every two years in conjunction with the AIC Interim Meetings. Accepted abstracts with a student being the first author will be eligible to be considered for the Awards. Only one accepted abstract from the same student first author will be considered.
Three prizes, agreed by the AIC Student Paper Awards Panel, will be awarded to students on the basis of the quality of their full papers published in the AIC proceedings. The top, first runner-up and second runner-up prizes will be awarded with a monetary prize.
An extended version of the awarded papers will be published in a special issue of
the JAIC. The awards will be announced and presented at the AIC Interim Meetings.
In addition to the three awarded papers three student papers in the same meeting will be invited to provide an extended version of the full paper for the special issue.
Further enquiries should be addressed to the Chairman of the AIC Student Paper Awards Panel professor Stephen Westland.

Installation by light designer Svante Pettersson Photo: Patrik Lindell, Vandalorum
The purpose of the exhibition is to increase understanding of what light is and how it affects our perception of the outside world. This we want to do by making available pioneering lighting projects, installations and artworks by 16 Nordic artists, designers, architects and researchers – including Snøhetta, Finnish Vesa Honkonen, Norwegian Ellen Ruge, Swedish Svante Pettersson and Danish Astrid Krogh. Their projects are presented through large-scale installations in the exhibition hall itself and at Vandalorum’s inner courtyard. Several of the installations are created specifically for Vandalorum.
