DJ Spooky is one of my favorite artists. I only wish I could’ve been in Boston at the time of this installation!
Via: In 2014, Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky was invited up to Dartmouth College by Stephon Alexander (The E.E. Just Professor of Natural Sciences at Dartmouth) and Dan Rockmore (Director of Dartmouth’s Neukom Institute of Computational Science), commissioned by The Neukom Institute to create a composition responding to the idea that conversations between Artists and Scientists could foster a comprehensive “album” where the A that stands for Art is added to the all too familiar acronym S.T.E.M. to S.T.E.A.M. The Hidden Code is an album that rests somewhere between a meditation on how artists and scientists convert ideas into action, and how composers translate the intangibility of music into a group of observations: The Hidden Code pushes Art into Science. Science into Music. Music into Art.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
