Portable Pixels and Worn Out Sounds

Collaboration with Audrey Samson

Far out science fiction or the outfit for tomorrow’s parties?

Large scale workshop for 200 VMBO (secondary school) students in groups of 10.

Tijdens de workshop maak je kennis met ‘draagbare technologie’. Met geleidend draad, resistors, folie, leds en batterijen maak je persoonlijke Portable Pixels & Worn Out Sounds voor je kleding, schoenen of tas. Waar komt het licht of geluid vandaan? Vanuit de mouw? Uit je buik? Je broekzak? Is het puur decoratie of betekenen de licht en geluidstukken meer?

Age range: 12-17 years old

Materials: Conductive thread, LEDs, batteries, resistors, electrical tape, duct tape, double sided tape, medical tape, conductive thread and wire, clothing hooks and snaps.
