Love these rugs by artist Alexandra Kehayoglou from Buenos Aires. A combination of sculpture and installation, art and craft, Kehayoglou’s pieces are both functional and environmentally conscious. Each one is based on a place she has visited and wishes to preserve or draw our attention to. This includes areas that have been depleted through mining and industrial use or are disappearing completely, as in the case of the glacial rivers in South America. In this way, Kehayoglou’s work is uniquely tied to a call for greater environmental awareness and critique of a society which does not seem sufficiently alarmed by issues of climate change and our devastating impact on the planet.

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.
