Data artist Laurie Frick shared with us some of the work she recently exhibited at her solo show “Patterned Language” at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX. From her artist site:

Laurie Frick is a data artist. She uses self-tracking data to construct hand-built works and installations. Using her background in engineering and high-technology she explores the future of self-surveillance where sensors and a mass of measurements present patterns of how we feel, stress level, mood and bio-function digitally recorded and physically produced.

She holds and MFA from the New York Studio School, an MBA from the University of Southern California and studies at New York University’s (arts & technology) ITP program. Frick recently was awarded residencies by the Neuroscience Research Center University of Texas, the Headlands, Yaddo and the Bemis Center. Frick’s talks and publications include The Huffington Post, Nature Publishing Group, Los Angeles Times, New Scientist, NPR and in 2013 a TED talk at TEDxAustin. This past year she had solo exhibitions at Texas State University, Oklahoma Contemporary and Marfa Contemporary.

From “Patterned Language”:

Keeping track of time, minute‐by‐minute, is harder than it sounds. After several amateurish attempts, I searched online for ways to track time on a daily basis. I found Ben Lipkowitz, an engineer and coder. Between 2005 and 2011, Ben logged every hour of every day, sharing it online at www.fennetic.net. His data is turned into ‘Daily Time Slices’. For me, I try to explore a fantasy future where everything is recorded and captured seamlessly and invisibly. Manictime app is just such a ‘thing’…turn it on and you can log every click you make.  I continue to imagine laser and 3D printing technology delivering physical, tangible hand‐made patterns directly to your walls, captured, made and recycled….in physical form. Digital becomes physical, and yet will feel hand-made It’s not far off. (Texas State University installation images – Feb 2014, curated by Mary Mikel Stump).

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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.
