“Bailarines del desierto” (Dancers of the Desert) is a ten-year-long photographic investigation by Andrés Figueroa of religious festivities in the Chilean “Norte Grande” desert. More than 100 years ago, in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile, an especially unique blending and transformation of Catholicism and local cultures spawned various religious festivals known as La Virgen de La Tirana, San Lorenzo de Tarapacá, The Virgin of Ayquina and The Virgin of Las Peña. Drawing large numbers of pilgrims, the festivals center around dance groups from different villages who have spent the whole year rehearsing and preparing for the event.
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.
