I decided to silk screen print Thermochromic Ink of fabric. Here’s how I worked with the material! Thermochromic paints that were available: (http://www.cornelius.co.uk/search) Chromicolor® AQ Ink Type 10 Magenta colour change occurs between 8-16C. Chromicolor® AQ Ink Type 27 Magenta colour change occurs between 24-33C. Chromicolor® AQ Ink Type 15 Fast Blue Colour change occurs […]
To recreate a sensor using textiles, I recreated a knit pressure sensor. I knitted a little rectangle, connected it with crocodile clips to the breadboard and using Arduino and an LED created a presure sensor. knit pressuresensor from Jessica Snidersich on Vimeo.

Although I’m fully intrigued and in awe of this time intensive and skillful work, I also think that it is rooted in […]
For the challenge of creating an interactive light object I decided to experiment with weaving side emitting fiber optics to create an entire fabric that reacted from a sensor. First using the table top loom, I weaved a 20×20 cm sq of fabric, using the side emitting fiber optics in the weft and cotton in […]
Since I took apart a potentiometer yesterday, I thought it would be fun to experiment with different conductive surfaces, like the two pathways that run along the base of the potentiometer. I worked with wood as a starting material and used a number of different materials to experiment with conductivity. I started by digging ‘canals’ in […]
Hi, I’m Jess. I’m originally from New York but I’ve been living in Berlin for the past six years.
