Sou Fujimoto’s massive pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery in London is a beautiful and sprawling piece of architecture. The delicate structure, made from 20mm steel poles, consumes nearly 3,800 square feet of the London gallery’s front lawn. On its own, it’s an impressive sight. But in the hands of United Visual Artists, a London-based artist studio that specializes in sound and light architecture, it becomes nearly awe-inspiring in its visual magnitude. Commissioned by the Serpentine Gallery and My Beautiful City, UVA transformed Fujimoto’s spindly structure with a light show that echoes the insane lightning storms you see in the natural world. “This piece specifically aimed to energize Sou Fujimoto’s architecture, which is representative of a somewhat serene Cumulus cloud,” UVA explains. “Our intervention aimed to evoke a terrific and comparatively overwhelming electric storm in the architecture, kind of simply aiming to bring it to life.”
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.
