Usually color-changing products are associated with children – books and toys that work as novelty items. But is that the limit of their applicability? Or can they be used for much more interesting things, like light or touch sensitive wallpaper, posters or calenders. These curious designs turn otherwise inanimate objects into interactive design elements.
Artist Shi Yuan has worked on a number of subtle and complex projects that reinterpret conventional objects of design. She has worked on deconstructing advertisements, challenging empty spaces with digital overlays and repurposes everyday products with her own twist. Hopefully some of these will go into full-scale production!
