Artist & Biologist Angelo Vermeulen’s Seeker [LJ4] Starship Community Sculpture #ArtTuesday

Artist & Biologist Angelo Vermeulen’s Seeker [LJ4] Starship Community Sculpture:

Seeker [LJ4] was developed by artist and biologist Angelo Vermeulen in collaboration with Slovenian and international artists, designers, futurists, hackers and ecologists.

Seeker is a worldwide series of co-created starship sculptures that evolve over time. At its core, Seeker is a community art project that invites people to fundamentally rethink the future of human habitation and survival.

Instead of keeping the various functions connected to life support, work and leisure separated, the Seeker community sets out to create integrated, closed systems that favour hybridization and encourage sustainability. This is achieved by radically interconnecting technology, ecology and people, while at the same time tapping into local traditions.

Angelo Vermeulen is an artist, biologist, space systems researcher, and community organizer. In his work he ties together technological, ecological, and social systems through group engagement and collaboration. ‘Biomodd’ is one of his most well-known art projects and consists of a worldwide series of interactive art installations in which computers and ecology coexist. In 2009 he launched ‘Space Ecologies Art and Design (SEAD)’, a platform for artistic research on the architectures and ethics of space colonization. ‘Seeker’ is one of the resulting projects involving co-created starship sculptures that evolve over time. He is a member of the European Space Agency Topical Team Arts & Science (ETTAS), and was the crew commander of the NASA-funded 2013 HI-SEAS Mars simulation in Hawaii. His space-related work led him to start a new PhD at Delft University of Technology, developing paradigm-shifting concepts for evolvable starships.

Every Tuesday is Art Tuesday here at Adafruit! Today we celebrate artists and makers from around the world who are designing innovative and creative works using technology, science, electronics and more. You can start your own career as an artist today with Adafruit’s conductive paints, art-related electronics kits, LEDs, wearables, 3D printers and more! Make your most imaginative designs come to life with our helpful tutorials from the Adafruit Learning System. And don’t forget to check in every Art Tuesday for more artistic inspiration here on the Adafruit Blog!


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.
