Glowtrix — Presentation of my project in Eyebeam Art + Technology Center, New York, NY

This is my Fashionable Technology project. I did a presentation of this project in Eyebeam Art + Technology Center, New York, NY.

This project is a jacket I made, it is called “Glowtrix”, it is a waterproof jacket that could interact with water.

The concept of this Jacket is “wearing water”, and —

“The water, the Nature illuminates the color of the city.”

I used Hydrochromic ink to print some cities’ names such as New York, London, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Paris on the jacket. The original color of the ‘cities’ is just white, but when the water or raindrop contacts the ‘cities’ on the jacket, it will change the color of the ‘cities’ to blue, the color of the ocean. Just like we wear ocean on our jacket. And we could feel the movement of the water. When the water leave, when it become dry, the color of the ‘cities’ will turn back to white.

It represents my concept: The water, the Nature illuminates the color of the city.
