[Apr 28] Soft Circuits: Electronics and Paper

Liz Taylor will lead a series of classes dedicated to soft circuits and their application. SoftCircuits gives new power to traditional artist materials such as paper.   We now have the ability to use electronics within books and flat projects to give them movement, color change, light, and sound. In this workshop we’ll be experimenting with conductive thread, ink, fabric, and tape as well as shape memory wire and thermocramatic inks.

SoftCircuits gives new power to traditional artist materials such as paper. We now have the ability to use electronics within books and flat projects to give them movement, color change, light, and sound. In this workshop we’ll be experimenting with conductive thread, ink, fabric, and tape as well as shape memory wire, thermocramatic inks, and LEDs. We’ll also talk about how to use paper as the substrate for your circuits, and do some soldering while we’re at it. In addition to these newer technologies we’ll be combining traditional art methods such as drawing, painting, and basic binding. In the end we’ll create small books and pieces that utilize these new materials. Come experiment and learn!

Bio: Liz Taylor is a new media artist whose interests lie in the intersection of art, design, and technology. While studying digital media at Florida State University she explored the elements of data portrayal and art installation through an Undergraduate Thesis focused on utilizing Processing. While completing a Masters in Fine Arts in Design and Technology at Parsons School of Design she investigates such topics as memory and personal identity through blending mediums such as illustration, computer programming, paper cut, motion graphics, installation, and soft circuitry techniques.
