Slick Sci-Fi Sculptures Slither Like Silky-Smooth Space Debris #SciFiSunday
Mesmerizing new work from Bill Thompson up on Creators.
Saturated with colors of an oil-slick opalescence, each nail-polish lacquered sculpture by Bill Thompson is hand-carved from a mass of polyurethane. Speaking about his process on his website, the Boston-based artist shares that, for over 30 years of art-making, his intent has been to explore the emotional provocation that comes from color in his art. “There has been a consistent fixation on the objectness of a painting. Early iterations included thick, textured paint applications on wood panels, followed by pristine rolled acrylic surfaces on plywood. [Later on] I began altering and carving the substrate itself in an attempt to further activate the color experience.”
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
