Atelier Nord in Oslo hosted a 4 days international workshop on alternative energies and electronic textiles. It was run by Diffus from June 1st to June 4th. It concluded with a 1 day seminar on June 5th. The workshop was especially open to textile designers, interaction designers and media artists.

Atelier Nord is a project base for unstable art form, such as electronic and new media art. Its aim is to create better conditions for these art forms and to maintain a critical reflection in relation to them.

The theme of the workshop was interactive textiles, soft circuits and alternative energy. We used different kinds of textile conductive techniques, solar cells and Arduino Lilypads. The workshop included an individual introduction to conductive materials, Lilypad and programming that made it possible for the participants to end up with a group project that was an environmental statement and an alternative use of solar cells, LEDs, sound and movements.
