Lucy Sparrow Creates 31,000-Piece Felt Grocery Store in LA #ArtTuesday


Lucy Sparrow expands her felted conveniences from the bodega to the super-market with Sparrow Mart. Via Time Out LA:

Sparrow Mart marks the fifth and largest of Sparrow’s felted supermarket facsimiles. All 31,000 objects in the market are handmade, painted and signed by Sparrow—and, yes, every single one is for sale. The pop-up installation opens today on the second floor of the Standard and runs through August 31, Tuesday through Sunday from 11am to 9pm.

As you brush past the wall of liquor bottles and around the produce section, you’ll start to put together a fun narrative that runs throughout the pop-up: All objects modeled after something once alive—fruits, vegetables, raw meats—have eyes. For Sparrow, it’s a way to imbue some of her pieces with a bit of character. “All potatoes have eyes, but it depends how far apart the eyes are, how close together they are; each one has a different personality,” she says.

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.
