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.”
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
