10 tracks, 10 jackets, 1 album
With Fabcafe Taipei this year, we are trying to convert part of the result of my old project: I Am Very Happy I Hope You Are Too to machine embroidered circuit by a Tajima indrustrial embroidery machine. The idea is to make 10 synthesizer tracks by producing 10 single board circuits, and then convert them into 10 jackets. Part of the flexible circuit will be made with PDMS. I want to try to test if the PDMS circuit can be sewable by the Tajima machine. The hand cross-stitched circuit method I used in Two Masks in the work “I AM Very Happy I Hope You Are Too” was firstly introuced on Adafruit in 2014.

PDMS circuit Some part of the circuit on garment can be replace with sewable pdms with embedded circuits, to reduce the chance of failure from generating an embroidered piece in large scale. https://www.hackteria.org/wiki/File:Bioelectronics_parts.jpg
