Needlework and Neuroscience with Hannah Warming #ArtTuesday
Hannah Warming has brought together needlework and neuroscience in an amazing way. Here’s more from Art the Science:
Working so intimately with neurons and “feeling” that texture of the cells makes it very natural for me to recreate them with thread—it is the perfect medium to represent them in a tangible form outside of the brain. I will never get tired of stitching neurons, and I hope I can work with them for many years to come.
Seeing the patterns that occur naturally in the brain, like the cell layer organisations in the hippocampus or cerebellum, is a huge inspiration for my art. I want to share with people the beauty of the brain, from the perspective of someone who works with it on a single-cell level. In the process, I am hoping to inspire a few people to enjoy neuroscience or even to pursue a career in research.
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.
