Abstract: The purposes of the study were to investigate the participation of artists in paper circuit computing education and to conduct an in-depth study on the formation and development of practical knowledge. To do this, we selected as research participants six artists who participated in the educational program of an art museum, and used various methods such as pre-open questionnaires, participation observation, and individual interviews to collect data. The artists participated in the education based on a desire to use new technology or find a new work production method for interacting with their audiences. In addition, the artists actively formed practical knowledge and tried to apply paper circuit computing to their works. To continuously apply and develop paper circuit computing, participants formed a study group or set up a practical goal through planned exhibitions. The results can provide implications for practical approaches to, and utilization of, paper circuit computing.
