Producers Matthew Kaundart and Luka Fisher‘s documentary ‘The Cardboard Artist’ takes us through Greenwood’s journey as an artist and touches on the life and death of his installations, which constantly run the risk of being destroyed. Kaundart tells The Creators Project, “Instead of focusing on creating objects to put on display and sell within the confines of a gallery, Calder uses his art to engage people in real world locations during their everyday lives. His art encourages us to pause and recognize that our world can change and be changed. I think the idea that everything is malleable—including one’s identity—is a great notion to plant into people’s minds in an era in which many of us feel we have little to no agency or control of what’s around us.”

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
