Midterm: Alexandria Smith-Light up Mosaic!

For my Computational Craft midterm, I wanted to take a swatch that I made earlier in the semester and expand upon it. I am a musician (trumpet player/composer) and I have always been fascinated by/passionate about making mosaics.

The materiality of the CDs is important to me because I feel like they are just a business card for musicians now. Most people buy music on iTunes or listen to it on Spotify or Pandora making the landscape for a performing artist’s revenue and distribution radically different than it was even 10 years ago.

Things I learned:

How to sew a working circuit with conductive thread and Lilytiny

Clear nail polish is PERFECT for making your connections stronger

CDs are very beautiful when you combine them with a light source

how to use the digistump library (for Lilytiny)

how to use the Adafruit Neopixel Library
