THERMOCHROMISM

Hochschule Hof, Münchberg


Experiments with colour, texture and form

This project aims at bringing an interactive quality to textiles through the inter-relationship of colour, texture and structure using traditional techniques of screen printing and handloom weaving. The thermochromic pigments used, respond to heat stimulus at an activation temperature of 29°C (body temperature). Layering different types of pigment changes the fabric, revealing something new every time it is touched. The double cloth weave structure further highlights the element of surprise by allowing both faces of the fabric to be drastically different and disjoint.
