INROFMATION THROUGH TEXTILE DYES

 

Examining urine is one of the oldest ways to learn about one’s health. Observing urine extends back to the 15th century Greeks.

Getting the individual information that would otherwise remain hidden and flushed away could be the key to overcoming the distance we feel towards urine. This is emphasised when the information received could impact your health.

Studies has shown content of chemicals in urine. One study in particular reveals the presence of BPA chemical (commonly visible in canned food, plastic bottles and receives), through the colour blue. This is interesting in relation to urine’s possibilities of being valued and establishing a closer relationship between production and consumption.
