Raspberry Pi Powered Artwork Reveals Emergent Structures #PiDay
Chaos holds patterns, and Fito Segrera’s Conversations on Chaos uses chaos theory, elements from dynamic system studies, and experiementation to reveal the emergent structures that lurk behind the chaotic mask — via Creative Applications
“Chaos is a state of utter confusion or extreme disorder. In thermodynamics, entropy is used to determine the amount of chaos of a system; this is one of the ways employed to study how our universe expands. Starting from the Big Bang and during 14.3 billion years until the present moment, matter has spread and organized in space; creating an ordered, stable, and apparent symmetric universe. Our harmonious existence, our bodies, our knowledge (patterns of thought), everything we experience today in our organized, balanced and stable lives, emerged from this original disorder.” – Fito Segrera
The total parts of hardware in this installation are two Random Oscillating Electromagnetic Pendulums (ROEMPs), a RaspberryPi linux computer, an audio amplifier and a speaker. The RaspberryPi is mainly used for software and data processing as well as for generating synthetic speech from the data collected. The core hardware are the two Random Oscillating Electromagnetic Pendulums (ROEMPs).
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.
