The “colorblind painter” loses his vision that was caused by a car accident. Due to the car accident the “colorblind” painter experienced carbon monoxide poisoning that also contributed to the car accident. “Mr. I’s life changed completely due to losing his vision from the car accident and know faces sudden life changes, such as him being colored blind” (Sacks, 1995, P.4,5,6).
The “colorblind” painter experiences himself visiting ophthalmologists and neurologists to hypnosis and can’t distinguish different colors for some reason because of his loss of vision. “The “colorblind painter” deals with having a hard time seeing colors, such as red and green, or other colors that are different to distinguish colors responding to cones, of the retina” (Sacks, 1995, P.4,5,6). Total color blindness is caused by brain damage and the cerebral achromatopsia that is described more than three centuries, which then remains a rare and important condition. Due to being color blind the “colorblind painter” experiences many life changes. His paintings that once were brilliantly filled with color know is utterly grey and void of color.
His paintings where known to be greyish or black and white colors. The color blind painter was once rich with association, feelings and meanings know looked unfamiliar and meanings to him. Everything seemed overwhelmed to the colorblind painter. His car accident was tragic and seemed to suffer from cerebral achromoatopsia that is described more than three centuries ago, which remained a rare and important condition. Due to being color blind the “colorblind painter” experiences many life changes. His painting that once was brilliantly filled with color knows is utterly grey and void of color.
His paintings where known t. .acuity was too external on being able to distinguish between black and white. Mr. I. was successful artist and was able to give graphic descriptions of his internal and external world (cite).
His attempt made no difference for his eyes and has no difference for his images that he sees. Having no color seemed to make no difference. The images that he saw made no distinguish on what shags and colors was real to Mr. I. How interesting how he only saw shades of grey. He retained what was a verbal memory of color and how he could remember color even from memories, which he knew that he had experienced color.
This evidence supports Gerald Edelman’s view on memories that are constructed. His views and characteristics of vison change his memories and how he sees only two colors. His vision is what stopped him from the things that he loved the most, which were wall paintings.
