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).
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.
