Red "Dead" redemption
Context is often more important than theory... nerds...
@ThePandaPool , all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy...
As an artist with a pretty good grasp on color theory, let me just say that red on a hospital floor is pretty much automatically assumed to be blood.
*gets pulled over by cop, is covered in blood*
"Excuse me do you have any idea how f- DEAR GOD WHY ARE YOU COVERED IN BLOOD?!"
"It's basic color theory, moron"
Thought this was a Lord Wivern post for a minute

Fun fact: In lighting design (my degree) red saturated light just intensifies what the patron is feeling so it can be sexy, scary, or just down right nauseating. But colors in light and pigment mean totally different things but are both determined by the situation. Does that make sense?
Red may have a larger number of "positive associations" but the human brain associates it with blood, fear, heat and action by default. You can use it in the context of love, passion, health, or whatever, but those are more complex brain funtions. There's a reason that warning labels, stop signs, and siren lights tend to be red. Our instincts tell us to respond to red in a negative way.
This is a great example of the vocal minority and how people take things, go way overboard and turn them into...wait is vocal minority offensive now? I feel like someone will be offended by this. We need a dictatorship for few years.
This is a children's hospital. How in the blue heaven and red hëll do you expect children to look at this and suddenly ponder about the theory of color?
