Open Air am Gärtnerplatz
My job was to supervise a group of students responsible for give-away bags and e-textile workshop for festival goers. With a lovely group of four we decided to use these same bags to incorporate a soft circuit with an LED and a switch. Matching the theme of the event, the group came up with a bridge switch in a tone shape.
After we were set on the prototype and sneaked in a circuit design into the printed image, the sourcing of materials began. In the end, there were 850 bags to give away for free, 150 of them were used for the workshops and filled with workshop supplies.
Additionally, the bah group came up with an alternative kids design and decided to make felt arm wrists at the festival.
eHaJo for our event, were stolen by unknown people...
I was very impressed with my group, who had so much to organise and lead, resource and acquire, plan and improvise! (E.g. they came up with a new technique for diy felt battery holders, as our initial ones were stolen.)
Also, special thanks to Dana Pflüger and Albert Ginthör, who were always incredibly positive and calm, and always kept an overview despite the massive workload for the festival.
