Textile Sunrise 1

The complex textile structure of the work Textile Sunrise is composed from a traditional and non-traditional mix of materials and techniques: weaving, printing, electronics and code. Interweaving these elements together leads to a dynamic visual effect, which produces nuanced transitions, unlike the binary “on” and “off” modes of simple digital systems.

The “rise” of the textile is achieved through conductive threads that are interwoven in the fabric. The activation of the threads by electrical current creates a gentle transformation in the thermo-chromic colors. 

Textile Sunrise was presented in Jerusalem Design Week and Berlin Design Week, 2019.
