The following project explores how colored light can be used as a variable to manipulate the perception of a surface pattern. Placing the work within the textile design field, colors are a main factor for the development, it shows that colors’ visual state changes when colored light is inflicted.
Taking advantage of the effect, an aim was set to explore the relationship between colored light and colored surface to expand methods of designing dynamic and storytelling surface patterns. This to add a different approach of how patterns can be created with a motion ability.
The method used was through experimenting with different color combinations under colored light, observing movement of different color placements combined with motif arrangements and patterns, in order to find a working effect. The outcome are three different surface patterns with a dynamic property, each with its own storytelling aspect narrated by the colored light changing. This contributes to a playful way of creating depth to surface patterns, which can be developed further to different textile areas.
