Athanasiou has previously explored the concepts of quantum physics in installation artworks, but this time wanted to create a more immediate experience.
“Virtual reality gives us the opportunity to create a much more immersive art experience than we would otherwise experience at a look-at-an-object gallery,” Athanasiou notes. “Experiencing art using virtual reality feels like you are injecting the art straight into your brain neurons. It gives the opportunity to the participant to fully immerse as well as, in some cases, interact and participate with the artwork and not just be a passive receiver.”
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.
