An intelligent textiles experiment in dynamic patterns. A fabric was silkscreened using a combination of temperature sensitive and non-temperature sensitive inks. When heated, dynamic and hidden patterns form.
The final print at room temperature. The triangle and hexagonal lattice is evident, however, the 3-dimensional cube motif is nowhere to be found.
4 screens were used to achieve the final effect.
The combination of half-tone and ink viscosity ultimately contributed to the success of the ink layering.
In the silk screen room. A long drying process was necessary to endure between each printing.
Comparing the untreated and treated patterns.
