Creative Creatures – Plastics Fantastics
electric creature creations – playing with plastics – learning with light
Creating creatures from repurposed plastic packaging and circuits, lighting them up with solar cells and LEDs, building new knowledge of basic circuit design, and putting it to work. The glowing creatures then become characters in mythic stories of our own invention with journeys, conflicts and resolutions. Inviting participants to use design thinking and imaginative processes to rethink our material culture, plastic packaging, and design flaws within our systems.
