Mold, Spores, and Funghi as Art from Judith Klausner #ArtTuesday
Egon Spengler would be very proud of this series of art from Judith Klausner that uses spores, molds, and funghi. Here’s more from Art the Science:
This series started with mold. I think mold is physically beautiful and conceptually fascinating. But often, it is hard to look past the disgust and disappointment we feel when we discover it has ruined the food we were counting on for lunch, consider our concerns it has on our health, or even just smell it. I was privileged to grow up with a science teacher mom who, when something went moldy in the fridge, called me over to look at how cool the mold was before throwing it away. I think that shaped a lot of my worldview and my approach to art.
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.
