Tuesday March 14th & Tuesday March 21st 2016, 18:00 – 20:00 in the Hybrid Craft Lab at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel.
A short hands-on activity, following a presentation about my work. We will start by going outside to collect materials from around campus. Leaves,needles, twigs, pine cones, stones, straws, berries, cans, coins… anything that looks interesting or inspires you. Back in the lab we go over the various conductive, resistive and piezoresistive materials available in the lab. Then participants will have time to produce a series of electronic jewels that explore possibilities for combining material, form and electronic function.
>> Hybrid Jewel project
Simple electronic functions we will try to reproduce include:
– pushbutton, switch, contact switch
– tilt switch/sensor
– resistive sensors: potentiometer (knob, slider…)
– heating and colour change (thermochromic pigment)
– electromagnetic relay, movement/actuation, speaker/sound
For inspiration, please browse the sensors and actuators categories on the HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT WEBSITE, as well as the Kit-of-No-Parts website.
