  • PREP: For next workshop in 2 weeksIdea: make a t-shirt capacitive sensorNeeded: simple for back partSome simple continous graphical, monumental design shapes Prepare screens next week:Make a collective appointment with Publication stationTuesday: technology Thursday printing testing

  • Back to 8 x 8 black & white

  • numbers

  • Low resolution Fonts

  • Suddenly: Design low resolutionDisplays, interfaces

  • PhotoshopCMD N new file8 x 8 pixelsEnlarge enlarge enlargePencil tooldrawCMD I => rescale to eg 40x40Result: terrible!!!!!

  • Rescale setting : Nearest Neighbor

  • First PracticeMake 8 x 8 images, draw or PhotoshopMake 8 x 8 numbersMake 8 x 8 text (in a bigger image 40 x 40)Short Political statementTexel = Krim! Student lib!
