Tuesday 28th Jan Basic Electronics and Soft circuits Tutorial with Jon

Explored some basic electronics ideas. Used conductive thread and ink on calico to create soft circuit to light a red LED and also incorporated a switch. We also discussed potential uses and applications of different materials and looked at several smart materials, for example conductive foam.  Jon introduced us to some EL Wire and EL sheet, these were very interesting, Id love to use them in a project at some point. The workshop with Jon is now over but I shall be continuing to investigate and teach myself electronics and arduino. I am very interested in Smart Materials and conductive fabrics and using them in interactive installation or sculpture.
