Inspiring Objects Designed for Everyone, From Arduino to a Soy Sauce Bottle #ArtTuesday

At symbol 4 sm 1

WIRED reports on MoMa’s exhibit, This Is For Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good, which features an Arduino!

Paola Antonelli has a theory about designers. “I keep thinking that designers in the future will become almost like philosophers, you know?” she tells me as we wander through a third floor showroom at MoMA, where her most recent exhibition, This Is For Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good, just opened. The room is filled with objects—Bjork’s Biophilia tablet app, Kenji Ekuan’s famed Kikkoman soy sauce bottle, the “@” sign—that seem, at first glance, to have little in common beyond the fact Antonelli decided they should be there.

But if you ask Antonelli, the senior curator of architecture and design at MoMA, she’ll say the objects are in this showroom because they share two things she feels are inherent to the practice of good design. First, they need a purpose: “Designers are little bit like singers and actors,” she says. “They need an audience, otherwise they don’t know what to do with themselves.” Second, and more importantly, the pieces in the exhibition are for everyone.

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, 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.
