Netherlands and Back

Just over a week back in the States after a whirlwind trip through the Netherlands and I feel like I’m just now starting to process everything that I did and saw while there. Met a lot of great people and made some new friends. Also, got to explore working for the first time with conductive and resistive thread, which is pretty cool stuff. I’m not sure what the implications may be on my project directly, but I sure did get a lot of ideas for exhibiting my thesis project in a few months.

Anyway, here’s a small selection of photos from the trip.
