American River People are Coming to NYC – on a DIY Shantyboat of Course! | @WModes #ArtTuesday


the Secret History of American River People project have embarked on their cross-country tour from California to upstate NY, where they will subsequently be floating through the Hudson Valley towards the mouth of the river at Upper New York Bay, but stopping at White Box in the Lower East Side of Manhattan and at the Waterfront Barge Museum in Red Hook, Brooklyn, for exhibitions to conclude their journey. I’ve been following the Secret History project for some time now so really looking forward to seeing this boat and its community and art. You can see more of the creation of this shantyboat here and learn more about supporting the project here. Their Secret History of American River People blog is a trove of wonderful tales.

 
From building the actual boat to wiring up its flux capacitor and more, maker skills are essential for ambitious art projects like this:


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.
