Unlimited Space Agency and Bare Conductive at Greenman


Jon Spooner, Head of Human Spaceflight from the Unlimited Space Agency approached us this year to see if we could do something for Einstein’s Garden at the Greenman festival.

Together we came up with a workshop that allowed the attendants to connect paintings created with the amazing Bare Conductive paint to the International Space Station. This paint conducts electricity and meant that the painting could have a bunch of LEDs glued on that could flash when turned on.

We created a giant space communicating antenna that all the painting were hung on. As the International Space Station flew over the antenna became live and the painting all started to light up!

This would not of been able to happen if it was not for the amazing support from Bare Conductive!
