We present the design and synthesis of spiropyran-based dynamic vesicles, for which the building block is the amphiphilic merocyanine isomer. Under irradiation with visible light, the photo-conversion of the protonated and charged merocyanine to the neutral spiropyran form leads to the transient and reversible expansion of these vesicles.
