Wherever Andy Warhol went, his camera followed, enabling the artist to create a visual record of his comings and goings. In his own words, photography’s appeal derived from its documentary function: “A picture means I know where I was every minute,” he once noted. “That’s why I take pictures.”
Now, more than 130,000 of these frames will be made available to the public via an upcoming book, exhibition and digitization initiative that offer new insights into the king of pop art’s personal life and artistic philosophy. The project, fittingly entitled Contact Warhol, stems from a 2014 acquisition by Stanford University’s Cantor Arts Center. Following an invitation-only competition, the Andy Warhol Foundation selected the museum as the permanent home of Warhol’s contact sheets and negatives.
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.
