Electronics as Fabric Textiles – the Tapestries of Robin Kang #ArtTuesday
TEXTiles//ElecTRONic// is a series of tapestries by artist Robin Kang. I recently saw the following pieces – Phantasmic Data Dawn and Lime Data – by her on view at the Queens Museum as part of their 2016 International exhibition (on view through July 31st). They’re really lovely works of art, and you can see many more examples of her work from this series – some extremely more abstract, others more like traditional PCBs – here at her website.
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.
