The artist as creator or inventor, in their attempt to use new materials and technological tools to express their ideas, has managed to generate new forms of interaction. Beyond digital practices, we have a new understanding of technology as a design material. Conductive yarns and fabrics, paints that react to heat, open source electronic tools or philosophy do-it-yourself are just some of the keys to the current hybridization between electronics and traditional crafts techniques. Diluting the border between disciplines, through drawing, painting and sewing, this workshop invites participants to build circuits, experimenting with new materials and explore the creative potential offered by the integration of electronics into textiles. PUERTA is a cultural space founded in 2013 where workshops, work sessions, meetings, film screenings, debates and proposals take place. The lines of support and research tend to be mixed: drawing, audiovisual, painting, counterculture, textile, writing, figure of artist, essay, matter, speech, process.
