Technology, Biology, and Music in the Art of Yen Tzu Chang
Yen Tzu Chang’s performances involve a dizzying combination of biological design and lighting effects. Their work exemplifies Sci Art. Here’s more from Art the Science:
[The term SciArt] seems to declare that you don’t need to treat art and science as opposing disciplines…new terms are proposed to tell everyone that they should be divided independently. However, SciArt is more like encouraging everyone to bravely explore new areas. People with a scientific background can try to make creations, while those with an art background can learn science and apply it to their art practice. It seems to declare that you don’t need to treat art and science as opposing disciplines. Just boldly try to work on art and science together!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to.

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.
