Color Permutations

Hue, saturation and brightness: these three components can be used to describe colors. Normally hue is measured on a 360 degree scale, while saturation and brightness are measured out of 100. In this experiment, I worked with my classmate Anna to map all three components on a scale from 0–45. The following colors were created with Processing using all 1,320 permutations of my and Anna’s lotto numbers: 5, 6, 11, 14, 17, 25, 29, 32, 37, 38, 40, 45. Each color uses three of the numbers, one for hue, one for saturation, and one for brightness.
