Beautiful work from Swiss artist Dan Acher.

Via The Creators Project.

With BOREALIS, he graduates from a building to the entire sky above the Swiss city of Lausanne. “People stopped in their tracks, in awe. Voices went quiet and, somehow, under this expanse covered by the lights, people would gather and create small groups to live this experience together,” he tells The Creators Project. The result is reminiscent of Daan Roosegaard’s, Waterlicht, which uses lasers to represent the water held back by Dutch dams.

Screenshot 4 2 14 11 48 AMEvery Tuesday is Art Tuesday here at Adafruit! Today we celebrate artists and makers from around the world who are designing innovative and creative works using technology, science, electronics and more. You can start your own career as an artist today with Adafruit’s conductive paints, art-related electronics kits, LEDs, wearables, 3D printers and more! Make your most imaginative designs come to life with our helpful tutorials from the Adafruit Learning System. And don’t forget to check in every Art Tuesday for more artistic inspiration here on the Adafruit Blog!

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.

  1. This is not beautiful, this is light pollution and is harmful to nature as well as obscuring and detracting from the natural beauty of the night sky. Think of the kids (and adults) that will see this and then be disappointed when they see NATURAL aurora borealis because it isn’t as “bright and flashy” as a fake art exhibit that essentially tells them that “the natural world isn’t good enough.”
