See Yourself E(x)ist looks at how artists envision our human future in nature—our poetic attempts at agency, our technological advances, and our futile role in the intricate and complex web of all living things. We are, after all, always plummeting toward our own end. Control is just a filter. Nature does not speak human. Turbulence, decay, entropy and gravity do not recognize human attempts at adaptation, or human existence at all. See Yourself E(x)ist focuses on human ingenuity in the midst of such disturbing awareness. The art acknowledges the elegance of futility, the strangeness of attempts at

Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
