Artist Rómulo Celdrán reimagines everyday objects as larger-than-life sculptures for his playful series called Macro. Things like bottle caps, ice cube trays, and sponges are scaled hundreds of times bigger for the sculpture series. Sometimes, this makes them well over seven feet tall.
The gigantic sizing acts like a magnifying glass for these objects. By blowing up the small details, we see characteristics of the item that we’d normally miss because they’re so small. At this oversized scale, the zig-zag surface pattern on a hot water bottle becomes much more pronounced, as does the joints of clothes pins. A pen cap also showcases the wear and tear that comes from chewing on it too long. It’s these nooks and crannies that invite us to carefully explore each of Celdrán’s works, making them a joy to view.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
