“The biological sciences have been the most important to me, but I am interested in all the sciences. I started science-art-based work around 1998. I have made work mainly from the neurosciences and, since 2000, worked at different stages with Dr. Richard Wingate of the Developmental Neurology Department at New Hunt House, Kings College London.”
“The drawings of the scientists [Camillo] Golgi and [Ramón y] Cajal have also been very significant and I love looking at their work. I have been lucky to have heard both [James] Watson and [Francis] Crick talk. In fact, Crick was invited into Goldsmiths College of Art while I was there to discuss his interest in art in the very early ’80s. More recently I have heard Gero Miesenböck [present] on optogenetics in a talk in Oxford, interesting stuff.”

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.
