Final Mid Year In Review


Wow! It’s been a busy mid year here at SolarActive®, and we still have the last quarter of the year to go!

Jenny Sabin used SolarActive’s® color changing technology to create the effect that she was looking for in her Museum of Modern Art’s Lumen Exhibit, and she won the Young Architects Award for 2017! SolarActive® launched in Europe earlier this year, and brought SolarActive ‘s color changing technology for plastics, inks and threads to unchartered territory. SolarActive® Europe Ltd. has several big name companies eager to expose the unique color changing technology! Artwork by Line Dufour and Romana Londi have gained International recognition.

September 2017 posting at we find that Jenny Sabin is selling the designer stools using SolarActive® Thread.

Line Dufour brought Re-Collection using SolarActive® threads to Ontario Canada.. Re-Collection is a series of woven shrouds depicting the face of a young girl or boy, or young woman killed by a sexual predator in Ontario. In contrast to the historically frugal materials, and humble weave structures once used, these cloths are jacquard woven with SolarActive® UV reactive thread weft. This permits each face to be re-animated when exposed to UV light. The exhibition will be at the Art Gallery of Burlington, November 16 2017 to January 14 2018. Opening reception November 16 2017.

Painter Romana Londi (b. Rome, Italy) used SolarActive® inks to create beautiful artwork. The paintings darken or lighten in response to the character and intensity of light.

On April 10, 2017 SolarActive® Europe brought color changing technology to the EU. As published on as announced at
