Colour Based on Nature highlights UNESCO World Heritage sites across the globe and on every continent. The colour diagrams are derived from 80 natural locations designated by the UNESCO list and then tweaked by Boom to evoke and celebrate the essence of a place through color. As Boom usually does, detailed information about the properties, why selected, how many are inscribed per nation and in what regions such sites are most endangered makes this an important tribute to the reasons these sites exist.
Color Based on Nature was on view from May 04, 2018 to March 17, 2019 as part of the Cooper Hewitt exhibition Saturated: The Allure and Science of Color. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Smithsonian Libraries.
