This is another offering from the STATIC! design research team working out of the Swedish Interactive Institute. It’s a wallpaper that, when licked by the suns rays over time, reveals a UV sensitive ink pattern. Project team — Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken, Anna Lindgren, Katja Savstrom and Sofia Stattin — suggest that Appearing-Pattern Wallpaper captures ongoing natural forms of energy that have a significant but slow change in behaviour over time, such as sunlight. To be in recline on your favourite floor watching the sun move across a wall that changes in response is a moment that we’re looking forward to.
