James Clerk Maxwell developed a comprehensive theory of electricity and magnetism. His theory, ‘A Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism'(1873) concludes that electric and magnetic energy travel in transverse waves that propagate at a speed equal to that of light; light is thus only one type of electromagnetic radiation. Defining fields as a tension in the medium, he stated that energies reside in fields as well as bodies. This pointed the way to the application of electromagnetic radiation for such present day uses as radio, television, radar, microwaves, and thermal imaging. Modern technology rests firmly on the foundations established by Maxwell.

ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION SPECTRUM:

WholeDude-WholeDesigner: It is important to understand Light as a form of Electromagnetic Radiation. Life exists on planet Earth by exploiting Light radiation, and living things which have visual perception, experience light and color because of the creative use of energy to design the artistic scheme of this physical universe in which man exists.

Electromagnetic Radiation refers to energy radiated in the form of a wave comprised of an electric field interacting with a magnetic field. Electromagnetic Radiation is the result of the acceleration of a charged particle. It does not require a material medium, and can travel through a vacuum. Maxwell’s theory received support after Heinrich Hertz proved the existence of radiowaves in 1887. The individual quantum of Electromagnetic Radiation is known as the photon. Light energy is transferred in discrete packets, or photons. The energy of each photon is equal to the frequency of the light multiplied by Planck’s Constant ‘h’. Green plants with Chlorophyll pigment trap light energy, and transform into chemical energy and use it in the process described as Photosynthesis. It is a creative mechanism to transform one form of energy into a different form of stored chemical energy that can be further used to create new forms of matter called organic molecules that are not present in nature. These organic molecules come into existence because of the activity of living things. It shows the intent of a designer to use energy, and matter to create the visual, sensory effect.

THE PERCEPTION OF COLOR:

WholeDude-WholeDesigner: James Clerk Maxwell studied Color Vision, he established Red, Green, and Blue as the primary colors. All other colors can be produced by an additive or subtractive process.

WholeDude-WholeDesigner: Red, Green, and Blue are the true primary colors. All other colors can be produced using additive or subtractive mixing.

Maxwell’s many interests included color. He analyzed the phenomenon of Color Perception which led him to invent the trichromatic process. He introduced colorometry, the analysis of color. The role of light and the creation of color for the benefit of things that have the ability, or capacity of visual perception speaks of a carefully planned work of a WholeDesigner.
