Art Basel just ended it’s annual show. This year, instead of focusing on just the art on display, Tirtzah Bassel decided to create “an installation that uses duct tape to replicate the people and environments” of the Miami art fair. hyperallergic.com writes:
None of her duct tape work replicates artworks from any of the fairs; rather, she takes photographs and uses her memory to re-create floor plans, booths, patrons, visitors, and dealers — in surprising amounts of detail. From a woman’s leopard-print high heels to a man’s colorful striped tie, she handles the tape in a painterly way, using small pieces to make patterns and giving texture to hair, clothing, and furniture.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
