Color Combinatorics – playing off of the…

Color Combinatorics – playing off of the branch of mathematics called Combinatorics – is the process of creating a finite number of color object sets based on a collection of individual colors, eventually optimizing the library by eliminating aesthetically displeasing sets. In other words, for this experiment I wanted to write some code that would take the 21 selected colors from the Pantone article and create the 9,261 sets of variations by using the new two-way communication between Photoshop CS3 and MATLAB.
