P++CB

A pre-program for Making Lab by Phillip Stearns, a New York-based artist who has been exploring light and sound, and interpreting them into textile, installation and performance, *P++CB* is a paper based approach to making electronic circuits with an emphasis on modular design. Extending his interest in the inter-communication between digital and analog media, the artist proposes a creative craft-based approach to the basics of digital media. For this project, he developed 8 types of circuit board modules that can be printed on paper. These triangle-shaped modules are printed out on regular copy paper, which is then glued on thick paper, cut out and punched to assemble the components, hence completed into diverse circuits.

A modular approach characterizes itself with standardized components that are compatible and can be put together, rather than one complete system. Inter-connectable and expandable, modules allow the making of more creative and expressible results that can differ from each maker. Each user can flexibly connect the 8 types of modules created by the artist—pulse signal generator, light sensor, LED/speaker/motor driver, and three binary logic circuits—for their designs. Initially *P++CB* was designed in the form of a rectangle, but was later modified into a triangle, because the triangular form offers many geometrical possibilities in making three-dimensional objects.

Having the core concept inspired by the paper circuit work of Peter Blasser, the modular approach to designing expressive and expandable creative systems used by Peter Edwards, and also the LittleBits project, *P++CB* is an acronym for “Printed Paper Circuit Board”: a wordplay on PCB, printed circuit board. In certain computer languages including C, “++” is an increment operator that adds one from the operand.
