This recent portrait by Cape Town-based artist Pierre Fouché was made over a four year period using bobbin lace in polyester thread. I’ve never seen anyone work with lace and can only imagine the immeasurable skill and patience needed to create something this intricate. The portrait will be part of an upcoming solo show at Whatiftheworld Gallery later this year.
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.
