Using our Liquid Crystal Sheets- a creative example
An artist called Andy O'Rourke used our thermochromic colour changing sheets for his Snow Dog project. Andy cut sheets that with different activation temperatures of liquid crystal and applied each piece in beautiful patterns around his Snow Dog. The full range of liquid crystal sheets was used to ensure that hot and cold weather would not interfer with the artwork. The snow dog reacts to hot and cold temperatures.
Snow Dogs are large 3D figures in the shape of dogs. These large dogs are positioned around cities to encourage locals and tourists to exercise. The aim of the game is to find each snow dog around cities and take a picture of of it to prove you found the dog. Each dog is given to a local artist before they are put in place. The artist is given the task to decorate the dog in their own style. When the event is over, each dog is auctioned of and the money is given to charity. Andy O'Rourke chose smart materials for his snow dog. Good choice Andy!
