Wear A Shawl Embroidered With A Personalized Text Message
At the Salone del Mobile, Raw Color reimagines digital transmission by bleaching encoded texts onto fabric.
Raw Color‘s latest project, presented at the Salone del Mobile last month, is a Cryptographer that reimagines digital transmission by creating patterns of code on shawls. These are made up of different icons, which represent the letters in a text message . The code is added to the textile using bleach, applied by a pen attached to the print head of the Cryptographer.
A personal message is more and more often sent digitally. Intangible, floating in the air, only readable on a screen. The Cryptographer generates pattern by translating words to a code. Bleached into fabric the message becomes tangible. Invisible words, with a physical impact. Controlled by text messaging each character is transformed into a specified icon, resulting in ever changing patterns, depending on the users input.
