Lauren Bowker

Having graduated from the Manchester School of Art with the award winning Carbon emission sensing ink PdCl2, Lauren went on to study printed textiles at the Royal College of Art London 

Creating several additional innovative chromic colour-change inks. Portrayed through provoking pieces, magic materials and extraordinary experiences those have been widely welcomed within vast industries from automotive, medical, textiles and couture.

Since leaving the RCA and founding THE UNSEEN Lauren has exhibited world wide from Paris and London Fashion week to The Royal Academy of Engineering, The V&A and the Barbican. Whilst receiving numerous significant awards and acknowledgement for her imagination and innovation along the way.

Lauren also sits on the Board for the European Council for the Internet of Things. In early 2014 she released THE UNSEEN AIR; a series of sculptures that respond aerodynamically through colour change, leading to a collaboration with Swarovski Gemstones and a series of future exhibitions.
