‘COSTUME CHANGE’ hits the Edinburgh Science Festival!

OK, I know you’ve waited a LONG LONG Loooooooong time to see this, but…. Drumroll please…..

Finally, I managed to finish the costume, the tutu, the elephant in the room, and get it installed at the Edinburgh Science Festival art trail! Wahooooooo! Why don’t you go along and have a look, it’s in Summerhall for the next two weeks (well just over one really!)!

If you don’t live anywhere near Edinburgh then here are some (not very great) pictures to whet your appetite!

I would like to say a HUGE thank you to allenomis for the use of the Amazing mannequin (designed and built by her and Brian at MAKLab Glasgow)

 

THERMOCHROMICS controlled by ARDUINO

This is a sneak peak at one panel of the ‘Smart’ Costume changing in sequence using an arduino controller…

More to follow as soon as possible

I PRESENT – THE origami inspired Thermochromic TUTU that Glows!!!!

Well, a first mock up at least!

Things have been busy at Codedchromics HQ recently and we may just have something very delightful to show you all very soon. In the meantime here’s a sneaky peek at a piece of costumeI’ve been making. More to follow imminently! (there is a deadline!!!! Arrghhhhhhh). ImageImageImageImage

It’s not looking at it’s best in these photographs but I thought it would be good to show what I’ve been up to… we’re working on a little movie to show it in all of it’s glory and different states.

Watch this space and thanks for checking us out so far.

One Fold – One Love!

It’s funny how an introduction to a certain design, technique, fold, skill or material can lead to an obsession with (in my case) a certain origami fold pattern! Is it funny tho? Is it just what we do? Is it our way of working as designers? Do we see the potential in the simplicity of an engineered shape and explore it’s aesthetic potential!? Well, for me, if it hadn’t been for the DEAF 2012 workshop that I attended last year I don’t think I’d be so obsessed with this particular origami fold! I have several people to thank for that – Meg Grant, Anja Hertenberger, Leonie UrffFlorian Horsch and Mika Satomi.

Before I had the pleasure of meeting the talented individuals above I had started here

Then as a team we arrived here -

And since then I’ve used the same fold again and again and again! This is just one textile sample under four different conditions that appears as different colours. Still… so much more I could do with this!

MAKING THERMOCHROMICS BREATHE…

IF AT FIRST YOU DON”T SUCCEED…

image-3Day one and nothing works, understanding levels seem to decrease and then you feel disheartened! BUT!!!!… Day two shows that we didn’t waste our time on day one at all and all of a sudden with a persistent Dr Chromic (DJCAD) and the Fabulous King Dougie (DJCAD) we finally got to grips with the Arduino UNO and some simple sketches… I may just learn to love this stuff!Image

Conductive thread test with thermochromic

CHROMIORIGAMI… This is how we do it!

A quick update on the state of affairs… Printing, cutting, foiling, soldering, wiring and not much sleeping!

Sorry about the iPhone image quality, just a quick sneaky peak at the current state of affairs.

It’s all gone neon!

Here’s a wee sneak at what’s been happening.
Sorry for being so quiet, heads down, thumbs up!
