How to use "Colour constancy" in context?

The phenomenon of Colour Constancy is the ability of people to perceive colours in the same way even when the colours are presented in different forms. Colour constancy is an important factor in the perceptual organisation of the world. Colour constancy allows people to perceive objects and scenes as a unified whole despite the fact that colours may be separated by different distances or positions in the visual field.

Colour constancy can be broken down into two primary constancy properties - absolute constancy and relative constancy. Absolute constancy refers to the fact that people do not perceive colours to differ in brightness or wavelength when they are presented on the same background.
