△ Craftografias digitales

80x15-12014 / Bilbao Arte | Centro de producción artística. Fundación Bilbao Arte

Recently, technological democratization, DIY culture and maker along with the appearance of new materials is allowing the artist to manufacture his own electronic devices. Today we have at our disposal materials such as wires or electrically conductive fabrics that allow the artist to mix technology with traditional craft techniques (sewing, crochet, embroidery, etc.). In this context the workshop is proposed CRAFTOGRAFIAS DIGITALES. The  workshop craftografías digitales invites you to reflect on the use of open source tools and new materials in artistic creation processes. Participants will receive a theoretical and contextual introduction to the practices you apply yourself specifically to electronic textiles. Taking as a reference the structure of the electronic circuit itself, as a basic element and relating it with its inherent identity as a map, we will perform an exercise in which we will learn to design and sew a textile circuit. During the workshop we will work with the Aniomagic and Lilypad Arduino e-textile kit.
