thesis poster 1 : One Step Too Far

Using thermochromic ink, I made activist posters about change through posters that change and interact with the environment. This is the first of a series (hopefully 3 in total). It is a comment on the incredible amount of species we're losing – 3 every hour! That's the same rate at the dinosaur extinction! I needed to make this issue visible. So my idea was to cleverly make a statement about issues that are out of sight, through posters that would disappear with temperature change – in this case 30ºC, which is just lower than body temperature, and so with warm hands just a touch would create this change. Anyway this is all I've got to show now... more to come really soon.

Hey, I love this project, it's such a lovely idea and design! I'm looking at doing some work using thermochromic ink and was wondering if you'd mind helping me out? I'm just wondering whether you're in the UK and where you got the ink from? also, did you screen print these? I would be so grateful for some guidance. Thanks, Gemma
