MAKE Session Proposal: Electric Origami

We experiment with combining art and technology in our classes at UNC Asheville.   Our projects focus on using technology for creative self-expression, and our classes include activities such as circuit bending, electric origami, microprocessor coding, 3D printing and milling.

In this make session, we will lead participants in creating electronically enhanced origami.  The project is suitable for beginners; both the folding pattern and the circuit are simple.  And the end product is a fun expression of the synergy of art and technology. Because of the hands-on nature of the session and material constraints, we will cap the session after the first 20 people to respond to this post.

Rebecca Bruce and I will both lead this session.

  1. I’m definitely interested! Also, I do some paper-folding exercises with my upper-level 3D modeling and animation students. I’d be happy to share these with you or maybe during an open time after your talk.
