True Colours

Plain markers and water

True colours reveals what no one can see with the naked eye – using plain markers and water

Colour consists of a multitude of shades. This also goes for black. By applying marker ink on water-drenched textiles, individual tints separate. This cracks the ink’s code and dissolves the colour into ever changing patterns – forming the basis for a collection of fabrics.

True Colours is the outcome of a study on the composition of colours by breaking them down, also known as chromatography.
