Stephen Wilkes Talks Photographing Suzanne Firstenberg’s In America: Remember with NPR
NPR talks about this 30 hour, 4,882 photo project with photographer Stephen Wilkes:
Everybody could say, “It’s such a dark, devastating scene,” when you really think about what it’s representing. I wanted to create a photograph that had those elements of that narrative storywise, but also was a photograph about hope and coming together. That’s one of the beautiful things that the installation naturally does. Thousands of people come out and connect in a way and can reflect on our collective loss.
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.
