In which we discuss #ShareTheBlack - the strange color war that has arisen around the invention of a new shade of black–VANTABLACK–by British Nanotech firm Surrey Nanosystems, who licensed the shade exclusively to the artist Anish Kapoor. Can you exclusively license a color? Yes - but its weird - and only been done in very specific ways up to now. The conversation leads us to a place where we have to ask … what is color? And what exactly do artists make?
