Summer 2009 seemed more colorful than usual, thanks to the boldly innovative Visionaire issue, SOLAR. Inside a sleek all-white case resided an all-white board-bound book featuring an all-white embroidered bird by Roe Ethridge. The book featured artworks by Alex Katz, Peter Lindbergh, Ryan McGinley, and David Sims — each printed using breakthrough color-changing inks. When viewed indoors or under artificial light, the issue, sponsored by Calvin Klein Collection, was completely stark in its black & whiteness. When exposed to direct sunlight, however, the artworks reacted to UV rays and bloomed into full color — and inspired actual items of clothing, too. Calvin Klein Collection’s Francisco Costa and Italo Zucchelli produced women’s and men’s pieces, respectively, made of fabric dipped in the same color-changing inks. Even Yoko Ono was impressed. “I love experiments on the paper itself in publications,” Ono says, looking back. “Visionaire is the only magazine I know of to make such far-out statements. Every issue is so daring and enjoyable. We all wait for the next one to come out. Bravo, Visionaire!”
