Dawn is a responsive window blind that illuminates in
response to its surroundings. The young innovative textile
artist who recently appeared on Tomorrow's World has
created a digital emulation of the process of photosynthesis
using intelligent print with electronically conductive
inks that emit light.
print pattern will resemble organic foliage. Electronic
sensors will monitor changing light levels in the installation
and will trigger development of the image on the blinds.
Thus an organic environment will appear to grow and
evolve naturally on the window blind, exploring how
changing light levels within an environment can have
a profound impact on emotions. Insufficient levels of
daylight can cause severe medical conditions, the blind
therefore appeals to not only sufferers of SAD syndrome
but to all who experience the space.
