Make the invisable visable……
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could see warmth? Well, you can! An infrared- or thermalcamera can turn surfacetemperatures into nice colours. It’s more like a sensor, scanning for IR radiation. You can compare a thermal image with the readings of about 80.000 thermometers at once. Each temperature reading is converted into a specific colour. The colourpallets “Rainbow” and “Arctic” are nice. Which pallet to choose? Depends a little on the topic and story. My favorite colourpallet is “Iron“, which goes from black and purple for cold areas to yellow and white for the hottest areas.
Life is all about thermoregulation!
Which topics to capture? Buildings, cars or technical installations? Most animals look very good in infrared as well. Sometimes the warmth comes from an outside source like a lamp or the sun, sometimes the warmth comes from the inside of the body, can you tell the difference?

World of Warmth started around 2005, with a concept to visualise the use of energy related to food. Not only production of food, but also transport, conservation and consumption. Infrared seemed to be the ideal medium for this purpose, as it visualises surfacetemperature it’s a great technology to show energy used for heating and coolling, read more >>
