SOFT CIRCUITS CAAD

American University of Sharjah, 2017

The goal of this four day workshop was to introduce visual communication and multimedia design students to  methods used within interaction design to combine hardware, electronics and physical materials into working prototypes. This workshop allowed students to investigate a series of tools and methodologies to handcraft sensors and paper-textile based circuits. Students were also an introduced to open source tools such as Arduino and Makey Makey. Furthermore, they experimented with electronic activated inks to generate displays that are both decorative and functional. The workshop emphasized craftsmanship, usability, aesthetic value, and provide basic physical computing insight through material exploration.

CIRCUIT ÉLECTRONIQUE ET COUTURE

isdaT-institut supérieur des arts de Toulouse, France, 2013

The goal of this workshop  is to offer pathways for product designers and artists to engage with the creative application of new materials and technology. The class exposed non-technical students to a series of tools and methodologies to explore diverse soft circuits techniques for integrating electronics in textile or paper creations. Also, they experiment with electronic activated inks such as thermochromic inks to generate displays that are both decorative and functional.

The aim of the class was to inspired students to consider the design and operation of the next generation of technological artifacts as soft, supple, and responsive interface. It will emphasize craftsmanship, usability, aesthetic value, and provide basic physical computing insight through material exploration.

ESCAPARATES INTERACTIVOS

Universidad de Deusto, Fab Lab Bilbao, 2015

El Ayuntamiento de Bilbao y la Universidad de Deusto, con el apoyo de Comercios Innovadores de Bilbao, promueven la iniciativa pionera Technoshop, un proyecto orientado a poner en valor las fortalezas y potencialidades de la ciudad como referente comercial, mediante el uso de las nuevas tecnologías. Dieciséis establecimientos de la ciudad expondrán, entre los días 20 y 30 de noviembre, coincidiendo con la celebración de “Bilbao Bizkaia DWeek 2015”, propuestas interactivas creadas en la Facultad de Ingeniería de la Universidad de Deusto.

Para ello se pone en marcha la I Edición de Technoshop,  taller de tres dias dirigido a estudiantes de la Universidad del grado de Ingeniería y Diseño Industrial. El objetivo general de este taller es proporcionar a los participantes formación en fabricación digital y técnicas de diseño de escaparates interactivos. Las mejores ideas serán expuestas durante la Design Week Bilbao 2015.

SOFT CIRCUITS

MFA DT Parsons ,The New School for Design. NY ,2010

The goal of the class Soft Circuits: an exploration of new media materials in the contexts of tangible interface is to explore the integration of new materials and electronics into paper and textile based interfaces. The class will expose students to a series of tools and methodologies utilized to handcraft a suite of sensors and paper-textile based circuits. Students will also experiment with electronic activated inks such as electroluminescent and thermochromic inks to generate displays that are both decorative and functional.

CRAFTING TECHNOLOGY & FASHION NARRATIVES

ESDEMGA Galician Fashion Design Superior School, 2012

This course of fashion technology is offered as a basic introduction to electronic and digital devices with new methodologies for embedding  technology in textiles. During a week, students will learn to build soft buttons and analog circuits using fabric or paper. Also, They will experiment with reactive paints and novel materials such as  yarn ,fabric or conductive thread along with other electronic components.

At the workshop a number of interactive prototypes and sketches  exercises will made to familiarize students with emerging technology projects in fashion technology.
