Dahea Sun is a textile designer who works at the cutting edge of fabric technology. In collaboration with fashion designer Gayeon Lee she has produced a range of silk clothing that responds to the acidity in rain water.
Using water-soluble pigments, anthocyanins found in red cabbages, egg plant and blackberries Dahea Sun was able to create her "Rain Palette" to help people visualize air quality at a glance. Such textile technology might at least make a wet Scottish summer a little more interesting and would help engage people in collecting data and being aware of their environment. (thank you)
