Soft Circuits: Hack-A-Bear
Liz Taylor will lead a series of classes dedicated to soft circuits and their application. Hack-A-Bear is a 6 hour intensive workshop will drop you into the basics of electronics and circuitry. We’ll use leds, batteries, small speakers, conductive thread and fabric to give our teddy bears new life.
Sat, Oct 1, noon to 6pm
This 6 hour intensive workshop will drop you into the basics of electronics and circuitry. We’ll use leds, batteries, small speakers, conductive thread and fabric to give our teddy bears new life. We’ll also have some felt and other sewonables to give your new friend some advanced personality. Please bring a teddy bear or other stuffed animal (that you don’t mind if it goes through some surgery). This is a fun introduction to soft circuits / wearables through a fun new toy. Advanced students can feel free to bring an arduino (uno or lilypad) that they’d like to experiment with.
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.
