Materials Alchemist Lauren Bowker / TEDxBermuda

9 December 2016 by Editor in Textile Insights

As ever Texprint 2011 alumna and materials alchemist Lauren Bowker is creating a stir. This talk was given at a TEDxBermuda event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Royal College of Art graduate Bowker has created an ink that changes colour based on the environment. She impregnates her dye into fabric and feathers, then constructs clothing that reacts to chemicals in the atmosphere. She tells her story.

INFO: About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations).
