Surprising, Enveloping Light Installations #ArtTuesday

via HYPERALLERGIC

Pirelli Hangar Bicocca recently opened an exhibition dedicated to Lucio Fontana’s Ambienti Spaziali (Spatial Environments). Ground-breaking installations conceived by the artist as ephemeral artworks staged in rooms and corridors, these works were mainly presented to the public between the end of 1940s and the end of the 1960s, featuring innovative visual effects such as neon and black lights.

The exhibition at Hangar Bicocca presents eleven of these installations, displayed in chronological order — each featured inside a room reconstructed according to the original dimensions verified through meticulous research. Among Fontana’s least-known works, the Spatial Environments feel like the pieces that would allow for a better understanding of the depth and breadth of the artist’s practice, which is too often solely associated with the famous cut-up paintings.

Born in 1899 to an Italian sculptor who emigrated to Argentina, Fontana spent his first years as an artist at his father’s workshop in Rosario, receiving a training in classical techniques, and then later joined the Academy of Fine Arts in Milan. Spending the first part of his career between Argentina and Italy, he produced academic sculpture influenced by the institutional language of art pompier and the decorativism of Art Nouveau, collaborating in the 1930s with some of the most prominent architects in Milan such as BBPR, Figini and Pollini, Zanuso, and Luciano Baldessari.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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.
