Once again we celebrate the meeting of design and technology, high-low tech style: combining the exquisite crafts practice at ENSAD with the new materials and technology from MIT. This year we focused on Screen-Printing, Professor Leah Buechley from High-Low Tech group of the Media Lab, arrived with 4 of her students and great materials to experiment with. Each group had to produce an interactive A1 sized poster. We focused on two elements: change of colours ,using thermochromic ink / liquid crystal paint, and movement, using Nitinol wire.
Check out the beautiful results, the experiments and the process on the workshop’s website and some of my photos on flickr.
