the lady sings the blues

Color is vibration. Different colors vibrrate in different ways. Like sometimes I'm red. And sometimes I'm blue.
Hitchcock once had a dinner party where all the food was tinted blue. People hardly ate. Because blue is not a color related to food. In fact, in you want to diet, serve meals on blue plates or put a blue bulb in the refrigerator and you'll find that you eat less. Because blue is an appetite suppressant.
But blue has other characteristics, too.
Blue is a cool color. This means that it recedes into the distance whereas warm colors push forward. Cool colors slow down our perception of time.
Cool colors (like violet, blue, light blue, cyan and sea green) are often considered soothing. The color blue slows respiration and heartbeat, making you physically feel calmer because blue causes the body to produce calming chemicals. Walls painted a medium blue can make a small room appear larger because our eyes focus blue in the front of the retina.
However, too much calm can get on our nerves. Too much blue for too long a time can bring on melancholia, depression, and feelings of solitude. Just like chocolate cake, too much of a good thing can be nauseating.
People are more productive in blue rooms. Studies show weightlifters are able to handle heavier weights in blue gyms.
Yves Klein loved blue. One of Klein's favorite places for meditation was the basement of a business owned by a friend's father. To mask the claustrophobic quality of the windowless room, Klein created a false sky by painting the ceiling blue. This marked the first time he created a monochomatic painted surface using the color that symbolized limitless space and spiritual purity for him. And when Derek Jarmon began loosing his sight, he thought about BLUE.
