COLUMBIA ROAD – HEAT SENSITIVE
Columbia Road, is a five colour print (screen printed in our studio in Peckham). One layer of ink is printed using thermochromic ink which is affected by a temperature rise (ie heat from radiators/hot water pipes or very strong sunlight) this allows certain areas of the design to temporarily change and reveal hidden images throughout the paper, then disappear again as the paper cools to room temperature. The design was born from a concept of illustrating to the user the wasted heat energy rising from household appliances, from wall mounted lights, hot water pipes and radiators. This design is also printed without the thermochromic ink.
