The morning began with a little presentation. I started out with talking a bit about Constant, what I do as a member of Constant, showing some work results from the workshop series Ellentriek, moving to what I have been doing with electronics and textile.
One of the students took photographs of the day – thanks, D.
After that I gave a guided tour of some projects related to the subject.
I started out by projects and artists I find inspiring.
They are not necessarily related to electronics and textile – but they do kind of feed what I do.
We then move onto the electronics and textile stuff.
In the selection for me it is hard to find something that really jumps out -> when looking at finalised projects.
One link I forgot:
Here comes the linkfest (in no particular order):
One of her projects: – Intimate Controllers
Plusea‘s instructables account

Funny article on “Is the Rise of Wearable Electronics Finally Here?”. It’s nice to see the historical projects.
