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.
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.
