How do we experience color? How can colors elicit complex responses and connections? ARTECHOUSE NYC opens its 2020 season with an immersive exploration of color, inviting visitors to descend into the sights, sounds and feelings of PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue.
Classic Blue — PANTONE 19-4052, more precisely — offers feelings of protection, stability, and clarity “as we cross the threshold into a new era” and “as technology continues to race ahead of the human ability to process it all,” according to Pantone.
As the 18 projectors around the space continued to emit blue lights and as the image of Madonna faded away, I was reminded of how the color blue is fundamental to our understanding of reality. After all, it’s one of only three primary colors that make up the visible light spectrum — the source of human vision and color perception. Religiously, too, it’s often associated with Madonna, heaven, and the divine truth.

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.
