Issue 3 of SOUTHERN EXPOSURE is a visual essay on the color red. Our vision prioritizes red above all other colors, as we develop the ability to see red hues before all of the other colors in the visible spectrum. There is a phenomenological quality to red light that feels wholly different from how other colors are experienced. Red light has a way of feeling more like a substance, more potent and active than other colors, as if you can feel the light in your eyes in the act of seeing. It is the color that most heavily illustrates that our minds play an active role in making the visual sensory experience. This zine explores bodies under red light, pairing substance of red light with the corporeal form, to show how one gives the other meaning.
