Japanese Bonsai Tree Takes a 10-Year Journey Around the Globe #ArtTuesday
We’re loving this project from artist Azuma Makoto, via My Modern Met.
Conceptual artist Azuma Makoto pushes the boundaries of traditional Japanese flower arrangement, taking his plant and flower designs to entirely new levels. Makoto’s 10-year project Shiki: Landscape and Beyond, captures the journey of a Japanese white pine bonsai tree around (and above) the globe. Makoto creates art using plants placed in bizarre and unnatural settings and, through his botanical sculptures, embraces the forms of beauty within the natural world from an abstract perspective.
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.
