In Brief

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.
