Screen-printing + Electronics
A hands-on workshop, a collaboration between ENSAD and the MIT Media Lab’s High-Low Tech group
During this 5 day workshop students will research and explore the technique of screen-printing in the context of the fabrication of new interfaces using electronics and sensors.
This ancient printing craft has a number of compelling characteristics: it is versatile enough to be used on a range of materials and shapes and thus makes the creation of soft, non-planar or dynamic surfaces possible; it combines a repeatable method of fabrication with high expressivity; it is used by a range of practitioners–from DIY hobbyists to high-tech industrial manufacturers. These qualities provide a fertile ground for innovation in the area of new materials and technology design.
