Fearless Symmetries: Judith Braun’s Carbon-Based Art Forms #ArtTuesday
Judith Braun, “Homeostasis” at McKenzie Fine Art: Installation view
Judith Braun works exclusively in carbon-based materials: graphite, charcoal, carbon-black gouache, and even bleached charcoal for white-on-black. Stunning work.
The overall effect is rich and disorienting — our Western mindset loses its footing between the framed-drawing-as-work-of-art and the entire-wall-as-work-of-art, since both approaches equally apply. A similar phenomenon happens on the opposite wall, where a salon-style hanging — twenty-nine drawings, all square, all abstract, most with white grounds and some with black, unfurl like wings from a largish, lacy central image, “Symmetrical Procedure IN-30-2” (2016).
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.
