This project has been amazing! A great opportunity to explore new dynamic materials and techniques. In my final session we explored thermochromic materials and reviewed available sources for such colour shifting technologies. Many thanks to engineers at Newcastle University for their support in this project.
There are so many ‘smart’ materials out there and too many to get hands-on experience of during this project, but I have learnt a lot about the potential of this exciting area. During the course of the project I have explored materials that respond, in various ways, to moisture, air, light and heat. The potential to create sculptures and installations that respond to the elements is exciting and I look forward to exploring these materials further in my work. Many thanks to the an bursary programme for the opportunity to extend my practice in this way.
