This fall, Station Gallery partners with UOIT’s Decimal Lab to expand dialogues around motives of wearable technology. Through this group exhibition, we can discover a body that is constantly negotiating demands made by technology – both humanizing and dehumanizing. Wear Me imagines devices and gadgets as agents in dialogue with the human subject/body. It will probe relationships between the two such as advancement, collaboration, co-sensing, friendship, imprisonment, nostalgia, parasitism, play, surveillance, interdependence and many more. This display will imagine humans and wearable components contextualized within physical, social, political, and phenomenological networks rather than in isolated subjectivity. The intent is to incite artistic exploration through provocative, playful or challenging contributions.
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.
