This is part of my thesis project using thermochromic pigment to silkscreen receipts.  The use of the pigment is to portray an image of a subject on the back of the receipt, over narrative text.  The idea is that when the image of the subject is touched, the image fades and a quote from their narrative is revealed underneath. This interaction allows one to have an immediate and subtle understanding of the subject encountered through the existing artifact (the receipt) collected everyday.
