Electronics + Cardboard!
The Plug-In Studio hosted a series of free pop-up, drop-in, art + tech maker events at community partner sites around Chicago. Artists Steve Ciampaglia, Lindsey French, Stephen Germana, and Kerry Richardson invited young people and their families to make interactive kinetic artworks with electronics and recycled materials.
We brought littleBits, Squishy Circuits, and LOTS of cardboard to four community partner organizations: Yollocalli Arts Reach, Evanston Art Center, Hyde Park Art Center, and ElevArte Community Studio. Kids and families dropped in, learned about electronics and circuit-building, and made sculptures that move, make sound and light up.
