Project description online

The posters exhibited are the result of the module "Printed Electronics: Squeegee, brush, and multimeter", offered by the chair of Interface Design. During the course of the semester we explored the artistic and technical possibilities of screen printing.

By printing layers of conductive and phosphorous inks onto the posters, a flexible electroluminescent shape is created. This shape will then emit light if a certain voltage is applied. All participants of the class first printed an individual two colour poster design, on top of which the electroluminescence was applied. During this process we examined similarities and differences between technical exact screen printing and artistic screen printing, called serigraphy.

We had the opportunity of visiting the screen print workshop at Gerberstraße, led by Adrian Palko and Max Roßner, for an excurision. During our sessions in the facilities of the chair of Interface Design we concentrated on the aspects of printed electronics.

The different inks necessary for printing an electroluminescent device were kindly provided by the InnovationLab Heidelberg.
