Carter Hodgkin: Unforeseen Behaviors, on view September 9 to October 16, 2010, is the artist’s premiere solo exhibition at Denise Bibro Fine Art. Fusing physics, digital technology, and painting, Hodgkin’s hyper-energetic, cascading compositions are based on simulated atomic particle collisions. Amid an infinite black void, thousands of vibrantly-hued dots explode and implode in a constant state of flux, conjuring fireworks, waterfalls, and volcanic mountains. An exploration of instability and uncertainty, Unforeseen Behaviors alludes not only to the behavior of atomic particles, but to emotional states of tumult, tension, and unease.

Embracing the infinitesimal realm of physics, Hodgkin manipulates computer code to generate animations of simulated particle collisions. From these animations she captures still images which become templates for the paintings, blurring the boundaries between digital media, drawing, and painting. Layer upon layer of overlapping tiny dots and fragile lines are painstakingly hand-painted in oils, coalescing into emergent iconic forms. In the artist’s words, the work “reflects a tension between technology and handcraft, as well as the rigor of scientific process and the emotional possibilities of abstraction.”


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
