THE UNSEEN develops wind reactive ink that changes color upon contact with air. London-based artist Lauren Bowker and her material exploration studio THE UNSEEN has developed a form of wind reactive ink that changes color according to different fluctuations in the air and around the body.

Demonstrated in a couture capsule collection designed for Swarovski entitled ‘air’, the biological and chemical technology is integrated into layers of fabrics, morphing its RGB values in response to pressure change. Similar to how formula one visualizes aerodynamics, through strands of color surrounding the car, ‘air’ is able to translate an environmental force into a graphic display.
