For my final assignment of Soft Circuit class, I collaborated my book art skill to technology. Compared to other technologies such as speaker or flexinol wire, my strongest point I learned in this class was LED. So, I tried to nurture my strength and made this interactive book.
There were several goals for this project. First, I wanted to explore my artistic aspects with technology. I had an idea that it would be cool if fine art met electronic stuffs. I had some experiences of making books but never made any interactive books. This was why I grafted technology with book.
Second, I wanted to make something with Arduino. I used to be afraid of Arduino because it was hard to use and complicated for me. During the class, I preferred to make something without Arduino because I could create interesting projects with only copper tapes and batteries. For example, I made lamps like this way for my midterm project. However, I decided to beat fears of Arduino during this semester because running away from something that I didn't want to do didn't help me.
