I’ve learned to take inspiration from the urban environment, daily objects, existing situations by looking at these not as static elements but plenty of potential other meanings and with the passing of time, this research has become an habit.
I think that everything (including people, but this is another and more complex issue) come in this world to became a sign of something else and I’m always trying to find this else in anything that I meet.
In this way, some paper towels can be used as portable pedestrian crossing, two plungers placed on the right bollards turn into two big boobs, an abandoned paper box found near the Ikea shop became the perfect situation where install an homeless as a new target market for the company and so on.
I like looking at the world with irony and with a pinch of provocation. My work is represented by minimalistic sculptures, urban rearrangement and small interventions in the streets. Their purpose is “open a door” to a thought, break the monotony of the urban bystander or simply brings the viewer just to smile.
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
