A Kit-of-No-Parts (2011)

Recipes for materially diverse, functionally transparent and expressive electronics. The Kit-of-No-Parts proposes a new style of building electronics, an approach to working with a diverse palette of materials to build electronics outside the constraints of standardized components.

Website

The Kit-of-No-Parts website is aimed at demonstrating the results of this approach. By showing examples of electronic circuitry and components built from a diverse range of craft materials and techniques, I hope to illustrate the material diversity and unique results that it enables. By posting detailed information how these examples were made, I hope to provide relevant resources as well as to encourage others to explore new ways of building electronics.
