Project

NUDE COLOR is a collection of short stories based on a thorough study of the history of color, its meaning, and the emotional impact that colors have on people's feelings and mind.

Each story, as if it were an exercise by the OULIPO experimental writing group, will subtly contain as many elements as possible related to that color; hence, a chromatic effect would occur during the reading.

At the same time, most stories are based on bizarre stories inspired by reality.
