Year of invention: 2013/2014

Description:
A silkscreen printed swatch with a geometric pattern printed with different smart inks, so the pattern changes under different circumstances.
I have a picture with six different patterns, maybe you can make more.
Dimensions: 15 x 15 cm

Inks used for changing patterns:
– Thermochromic ink reactive at 17 degrees
– Thermochromic ink reactive at 27 degrees
– Photochromic pigments reactive to UV (sunlight)
– Photo luminescence pigments (glow-in-the-dark)
– Fluorescent ink reactive to UV-A (blacklight)
They are all mixed with a transparant base.
Here is the pdf file I have used for making the screen: Changing Patterns file
