O’Meara’s artistic background is in print design, and she’s also the owner of The Archive, an extensive library of over 50,000 fashion and print designs. Clarke, meanwhile, is a sound artist, electronic musician and DIY instrument builder and Gilford is an artist, maker and creative practitioner, specialising in screen printed textiles, education and social enterprise. The fusion of those diverse yet highly complementary skill-sets is instrumental in what’s brought this project to life; and for O’Meara, one of the joys from her own line of work was in seeing the “fusion of contemporary and traditional” techniques in making the huge collaborative quilt.
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.
