Random Assemblages of 3D Models Are Today’s Readymades: Shiv Integer
These random assemblages of open-source 3D models are a kind of Thingiverse self-satire. They’re also something Duchamp would grin at. They’re also really goofy looking. via The New Aesthetic
Thingiverse is beautifully diverse in culture and these assemblies celebrate that by bringing them together, respecting the former author’s liscences. Thingiverse uniquely facilitates remixing and this may result in things that borrow from your designs beyond what you had in mind, it is a freedom that you chose to grant to things.
Is it Art? Yes, this is art made from found objects and using chance, collage, generative and remix approaches. Art has been made using these methods for a century.
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.
