The printed organism

Jacket inhabited by a Printed OrganismFriends, Hosts and Parasite, by Mouna Andraos and Sonali Sridhar have designed a jacket inhabited by a Printed Organism, that appears and grows on the garment only when it is being worn for long enough.

When you wear the cotton jacket, the pattern, like a parasite or a wine plant, slowly comes to life as color until it reaches full visual bloom. When the jacket is removed again, the organism slowly dies out until it fades into a seamless printed pattern. The human body acts as a host and provides a support structure for the organism to grow on.

The printed organism is created using thermo-chromic inks and is electrically controlled through conductive wire threaded directly on the fabric of the jacket.
