Rómulo Celdrán’s Macro 8/13 Sculptures #ArtTuesday

NewImage

These sculptures are amazing!

From My Modern Met via We The Urban:

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.

Screenshot 4 2 14 11 48 AMEvery 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!

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.

Join 7,500+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord

CircuitPython in 2018 – Python on Microcontrollers is here!

Have an amazing project to share? Join the SHOW-AND-TELL every Wednesday night at 7:30pm ET on Google+ Hangouts.
