Opala / textiles


This project investigates if and how design processes can take advantage of the integration of technology and fabric in terms of the physiology of the human eye. The inspiration came from camouflage, instead of blending in I focused on a visual that would stand out. 
The patterns are made by using RGB colors designed with computer programs in three channels separately into one unique piece.
This led to patterns that can 'change' in terms of the human eye to four different patterns. Opala is a neutralization of RGB channels on fabric, the process is done by shedding colored RGB light on to pattern.
