The Unseen - Wind reactive color changing ink

by Anna Marie Cooper July 30, 2014

This collaborative effort led by Lauren Bowker for The Unseen is eye-catching to say the least. Made with a specially formulated color changing ink, the winged garment reacts to the changing winds of the environment around it going from matte black to a rainbow of mesmerizing holographic colors. Bowler is the founder of The Unseen and graduated from the Manchester School of Art with the award winning Carbon emission sensing ink PdCl2. As if that weren't enough, she then went on to study printed textiles at the Royal College of Art London; where she developed more color changing inks. Impressive. Finding creatives who have the capacity for both art and science is extremely rare, and it is apparent that she has high ambitions which I can't help to admire. If she can teach me how to "hack my Converse," I will be more than happy to learn how. I'm not sure about you, but I'll definitely keep her and the Unseen on my radar (you have no idea how hard it is not to make a bad pun here). I would highly recommend looking more into her work with The Unseen. The website is dark, dramatic and definitely worth a peek.
