On February 8, 2011 students in Interactive Art at LASALLE College of the Arts participated in a PINSession.
PINSession is an event started in 2005 and is organized by Pin - Portuguese Association for Contemporary Jewelry. It has been held in different venues in Portugal and Brazil.
Anyone can participate and design a pin. Choice of materials are unlimited, and the only requisite is that it incorporates a traditional stainless sewing pin.
I collaborated with PIN and organized a PINSession in Singapore.
For the PINSession Singapore, participants were asked to design an Electronic Pin (one that incorporates electronic components and that is light emitting).
Participants/students: Cheong Mun Yoke Tiffany, Tan Kok Keong, Aw Meng Tiong, Benjamin Low Teck Hui, Henzy Quek Hengzhi, Jacky Boen,
Mithru Vigneshwara Swarna, Mui Rui Yi, and Ong Chee Chou.
