a question for the raver-types

I’d like to attach EL wire to the edge of a fan, but I suspect it wouldn’t like being doubled up when the fan folds. Am I right about that? Any suggestions for how to get a cool glowing edge by other means?

(What I really want is for the fan to light up automatically when opened, and go dark when folded. But I suspect that would require rather more engineering than I’m capable of, or want to do.)

    Ask Christina (cgasko at gmail dot com) – she sews with EL wire.

    And would you want something that glows on its own or is photoreactive?

      I’d prefer glowing rather than photoreactive, since I’m mostly going to be in a lit space. Good call on e-mailing Christina; I’ll give that a shot.
