“Floe” embodies the shape and movement of ice drifting on the surface of the North Atlantic. In this region shards of ice drift freely along the surface of the water, and slight changes in tide and intense northern lights bring life to the environment. The piece is inspired by formations and movement found in nature.
This second version of the piece presents the very same glass structure with a different lighting solution. Rather than using a projector, this time the glass piece is lit by thin strips of LED positioned below the light diffusing base of the structure.
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.
