The Conversation (2011)

The Conversation is a poster that performs. The poster is coated in a layer of theromochromic ink, dulling it’s originally distinct colours. On the back of the poster a circuit with painted heating elements causes defined areas to heat up and turn the layer of thermochromic ink transparent, revealing the colours beneath.
The poster is mounted on a frame that has four speakers embedded in it. Throughout three choreographed acts the design of the poster morphs as geometric shapes and bright colours appear and fade out while the speakers emit sound. In each act sound colors and graphic elements enter into a dialogue upon the poster stage.
