Light is the paint of God
Without light
The world would be colorless

Human’s pursuit of light is instinctive. LED has been our ideal source of light since it was born, lighting up a new revolution of illumination for human’s better future.

What on earth is LED? Why can it illuminate? How is LED useful?

For decades, there have been continuous research on LED, whose scientific research results have been applied into our daily life. LED has gratified us with better control on light and electricity, and has inspired numerous artists. LED has lit up our space and time.

About the event

LED stands for Light Emitting Dlode, a a semiconductor light source. For this event, MAKE+ team is going to redefine L. E. D. Through three phases of activities, the team is going to guide the participants to reveal the secrets of LED, and enjoy the fun of making.
MAKE+ team has also created a mysterious LED installation specifically for this event. On this Saturday, the participants are going to be present for a marvelous wander with light and electricity. This installation is going to be remained till Sunday. During the exhibition period, MAKE+ is going to share how they create it. Join us in this event to create your own LED installation!

The light installation co-created by MAKE+ and Consulate General of France

Through Learning-LED lecture, MAKE+ is going to offer their comprehensive interpretation of LED.


02. Experience

Due to the limited material, the number of participants has to be below 40
Given a beam of light, what would you do with it?

To illuminate a card?

To explore a forest?

To awake an ancient civilization?

Or even, to make it a part of you?

In Experience-LED paper circuit experience workshop, MAKE+ is going to lead the participants to apply the scientific knowledge they know, to create their own beam of light with LED light emitting chip, button battery, conductive ink pens, tapes, magnets, and all kinds of creative tools.
After completing the works, there will be a lighting ceremony. Join us to end the darkness.

03. Discovery
