In the video the scientific procedure was juxtaposed with the thermo sensitive jacket to show how a chromatic change dynamically visualizes information.
Just as the jacket’s chromatic shift indicates a change in the environmental atmosphere, the chromatic range of the materials in a chemical procedure signals information about a cellular mechanism.
Color can be responsive and indicate a change of state such as a chemical change; or, it can tell you something about your environment.
ICE JACKET – J – Stone Island extends its research on thermo sensitive materials to stretch fabrics.
A water- and wind-resistant polyurethane film is embedded with micro-encapsulated pigments.
The molecules of these pigments modify the passage of light and color morph in relation to temperature changes.
The film is bonded to a light polyester mesh base and is used to construct a garment insulated by a polyester fiber quilting.
