Research of color and the meaning of color






Lars Sivik, associate professor.


After finishing high school and obligatory military service, Lars Sivik acquired teaching credentials and a few years later also became a licensed psychologist and psychotherapist.
Both as a teacher and a psychologist he worked mostly with emotionally disturbed children, both in Stockholm and Gothenburg. Following this, he returned to university for a doctoral thesis, which was based on investigations into colour connotations and meaning in various contexts. He then became a university teacher, and later Research Prof., at the Department of Psychology, University of Gothenburg.
From 1967 Lars Sivik worked with Prof. Anders Hård in a group that, funded primarily by The Swedish Building Research Council, for many decades did research on colour perception, color systems, analysis of the nature of color combinations, colour connotations and other areas of colour experience. To a large extent the work comprised of standardizing color systems and the international dissemination of color knowledge. The colour systematization work resulted in the Natural Colour System, which is now becoming the dominant color system worldwide. 

Throughout his career, Lars Sivik has lectured at a number of universities worldwide, and has also had many consulting assignments concerning practical color applications. He has also been active in AIC (Association Internationale de la Couleur) and was together with Anders Hård and Gunnar Tonnquist awarded the Judd Award, the AIC scientific award, in 1997.

Lars Sivik remains active as a consultant and lecturer.
