Crafting Elasticity

This project is an investigation of materiality and embedded conductivity. The base material is SkinRite 10 which is a silicon rubber product that is translucent and highly elastic. The embedded conductivity is achieved with 3V coin battery, wire wrapping wire, and LEDs. 2 prototypes were developed during the process: first, a simple elastic button which lights up when pressure is applied and second, a 3 dimensional puzzle that only lights up when it is configured correctly.
