Water Reactive Print
Collaboration between fashion designer Theresa Bender and Henriette Ackermann. Support for Theresas BA- Project.
How could a print look like, that reacts to the conditions of the desert. Since it`s very warm there the idea was to develope a pattern that becomes visible when it reacts to water (human sweat). Therefore we created a crakelee effect on a fabric wich was photographed at teh studio and printed on textile afterwards. Following the print was covered with a water reactive paint. The white paint becomes invisible when it gets in contact with water. Now, if the person waering the T-Shirt starts to sweat, the Shirt seems To crack.
