With her 2008 performance in the Stuttgart bus network performance “Bus Tour S” Menja Stevenson proves impressively that humor and social criticism must not be mutually exclusive. The hair disciplined parted, with a slightly bored expression, now and then dreamily looking out the window, hands in the lap or on the back of the front seat, the artist has inconspicuously in the stream of lemmings, average citizens on the way to work, shopping and to the employment office, queued. Only her business costume is conspicuously inconspicuous, because it – like her handbag – made of the same velvety, coated with geometric Op-Art elements colored fabric like all seats in the bus. An older lady is irritated, almost amused, but the majority of passengers do not seem to register Menja Stevenson’s performance. The ritual of everyday life wins.
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.
