The story of 'Exposures'
A photosensitive process.
Fascinated by the idea of shaping a textile by the pure usage of light, Raw Color developed ‘Exposures’ a photosensitive fabric based on the blueprint technique. The ‘gradient machine’ is especially designed for the production process and exposes the textile in horizontal lines. These horizontal lines can be adjusted in thickness. Depending on the length of exposure, daylight is captured in the material, resulting in different shades of blue. The longer exposed the darker the fabric will become, which is not only indicated by the color itself but as well by the numbers representing each lines’ exposure time in minutes. After the process the textile is washed with water to be fixated.
