Black ; sleak, sexy, bold. but is it a color or an absence of?

Black can be the safest route to go or the most daring when applied to fashion or interiors. But is black really a color or an absence of? its a complicated explaination that doesn't seem to have a straight answer. some say it is when others say it isn't and when i tried to fiqure it out i just found myself re-reading explanations and still not understanding them. but i do know this; black has a powerfull presence. it can be viewed as sophisticated, bold and eye catching and when joined with a contrasting accent such as white or chrome there is no denying the obvious, with all of this visual power i have to say that black is definatly not an absence of.
