Traditional printing methods are being fused with responsive dyes to create tech-savvy fabrics.

Orkan Telhan is an Assistant Professor of Fine Arts at University of Pennsylvania, as well as a passionate artist. His most recent work has been combining traditional printing techniques with electroluminescent and electrochromic inks – creating something entirely new in the process.

The result of merging technologies such as silk screening and letterpress printing with electrochromic inks are shape-shifting psychedelic designs. Responding to an electric current, the electroluminescent ink emits light, while the electrochromic ink changes its transparency.
