The Skywatching Art of Dr. Annette Lee #ArtTuesday
Dr. Annette Lee brings together science and her native culture to make her celestial paintings. Here’s more from Art the Science:
“Going along in academia, I almost felt like a ping pong ball or a pendulum,” Lee describes. “It’s got to be one or the other—I did mathematics, then I did painting, then I did astrophysics, then I did painting.”
However, her culture helped her understand that science and art need not be separated. Lee believes that art and science are connected to the different components of mind, body, heart, and spirit. “The science is rooted in the mind and the body, and the art is more rooted in the heart and the spirit,” she explains.
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.
