Week 2 – Erica

I was inspired by the quote “Adventure is out there!” from the movie ‘UP’. I really like the how colorful the movie is and the balloon element. So I decided to create the balloon house scene and integrate the LEDs into the balloons. The mediums I chose are fabrics, conductive threads, and embroidery threads.

I started by drawing out how to connect all 6 LEDs together with the battery, then I sewed them on to the fabric.

I dyed a small strip of fabric with watercolor, cut them into balloon shapes and sew them on top of the LEDs for diffusing. Then I added more embroidery threads next to the conductive threads so they look like balloon strings. Lastly, I did a small embroidery House and sewed it to the bottom.
