Trina Merry is best known for her unique style of conceptual art that combines painted models with photography. We’ve previously featured some of her artwork that mimics astrological signs and blends human figures into scenes around New York, but her newest collection of images take a trip around the world. The artist had her subject, UK model Kyle James, fully painted and posed in front of several modern Wonders of the World for a series titled Lost in Wonder. With a colourful and abstract perspective, Merry’s photography examines the impacts of tourism, “methods of memory- making and the ways these are digitalized globally” using the painted human body as a canvas and the famous sites as a backdrop.
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.
