This is a project about the innocence of being young and the sort of maze one wanders through to find the truth of who they are. These pictures reflect on personal, historical and contemporary experiences around issues of race and identity in America. Being a mixed race child, it has never been impressed on me that I should choose between my cultural backgrounds but within this work, I have decided to explore the issues that surround black masculinity using my father as my entry point while I reflect on how different my life would be if I looked more like my him.
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.
