Dear Shaded Viewers,
In true symbiosis with the essence of the brand Issey Miyake, "SymbiosisO: Voxel" is an interactive exhibition by Eszter Ozsvald, Kart Ojavee and Alex Dodge.The project combines dyed with thermochromic inks with invisible embedded electronics, when a human touches the installation the color changes and allows its viewer to design running animations on the textile via a mobiel, we-based interface. The collaboration is the artists' vision for future production of consumer products which include clothing and that emply this new technology.

The web-based interface is active and available at:
Using their iPhones and iPads, users can visit the web-based interface and can tap on the voxels on the screen to create a pattern (or
a number of changing patters if they choose to), press the SUBMIT button and see the pattern appear on the SymbiosisO: Voxel textile
installation located in the tribeca ISSEY MIYAKE space. Note that it's best not to press the SUBMIT button unless you're physically in the tribeca ISSEY MIYAKE space to see the animation come to live on the wall piece.
