V&A Circuit Building Workshop

Novice builds their first circuit.

Codasign and V&A Museum collaborated on producing a circuit building workshop for their Digital Futures Programme. The workshop introduced circuit building to novices. I started with basics using graphite to make circuits. Then we build circuits using a 555 timer chip. The 555 Timer provides a means to create control in a circuit using components alone. No digital programming required.

The artist’s were interested how to build circuits into the artwork. We covered soft circuits, conductive ink and other components for participants to consider.
