Assignment 2- Swatch Alexandria Smith

Button Swatch:

Materials used- Old CDs, Led, Copper tape, and metal tag.

How it works: 

You press the aluminum tag onto the copper, completing the circuit to light the LED.  The LED reflects the light onto the CDs causing a reflective effect.  I wanted to see what it would look like if I trapped light into a box.


It was a pretty straight-forward project, with the hardest part being cutting up the CDs (a lot of labor!).

I want to take this project further by placing the CDs more strategically making a more intense mirror effect.
