|The Theme You Picked: Electronic Art|
|Project14 | Electronic Art: Make Something Beautiful Using Free Form Circuitry or a Board of Your Choice!|
The theme this month is Electronic Art and it comes from an idea from fmilburn . Its an idea that is inspired by all the great projects that you submitted in the PiCasso Design Challenge as well as a lecture on freeform circuitry he was fortunate to attend by Mohit Bhoite (embedded below). This challenge invites you to use free form circuitry to create circuit sculptures that interact with your surroundings. Or use a board of your choice such as a Raspberry Pi, an Arduino, or a micro:bit to create something beautiful. fmilburn has already created a couple of projects that are great examples of electronic art. There is the Screaming LM386: An Audio Amplifier with PCB Art project that he produced for the Acoustics challenge and Rosie Learns to Solder which he did in honor of the badass women engineers video talent contest from element14 presents. He also participated in the PiCasso challenge where he produced PiCasso Adapting Art to Viewers. Some other examples of great projects from the PiCasso challenge that also fit this theme include Art-a-Tronic by balearicdynamics , PiMassive by gam3t3ch , Hologram Pi-ramid by luislabmo, Colorful Rotating Chinese Lantern by wesee, POV Globe by dwinhold , 9 Pieces of Pi by jc2048 , and Kinetic Art Mobile by genebren .
Your project can involve freeform circuitry, "dead-bug" style circuitry, circuit sculptures, flywiring, PCB art, interactive hanging installations, camera vision, interactive wall art, room lighting control, sound and effects, and anything that pushes the boundaries of creativity to make something beautiful that adds aesthetic value to your surroundings. Freeform circuitry which goes under many names is a technique that's been around for awhile. Mohit Bhoite, whose lecture on freeform circuitry is the inspiration for this contest, is a senior hardware engineer Particle and an electronics sculptor by night. You can view his lecture here:

Your Project, Your Ideas!
Every month you'll have a new poll where you'll get to decide an upcoming project competition, based on your interests, that will take place a couple of months in advance. Themes are broad in scope so that everyone can participate regardless of skill set.
What are Monthly Themes?
What are Monthly Theme Polls?
Step 2: Post in the comments section below to begin a discussion on your idea. Videos, pictures and text are all welcomed forms of submission.
Step 3: Submit a blog post of your progress on your project by the end of the month. You are free to submit as many blog entries as you like until the beginning of the next theme.
Be sure to include video proof of your project!
Visit: or tag your project blog ElectronicArtCH
You have until September 14th End of Day to submit your completed project!
A jury consisting of your peers will judge project submissions!
