If art means building a titanic, other-worldly polar bear creature and then detonating it with live pyrotechnics, then art is good. Here’s more from JUXTAPOZ:
For his latest project ‘Protect What you Love’ in Valencia Spain, DULK launches an impressive series of city wide activations, exhibitions, apps and prints. Most significantly, the activity coincides with the prestigious annual tradition of Las Falles, which after 2 painstaking years, will see a 23 meter high polar bear dramatically burnt to the ground.
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

Fallas/Falles is incredible. Probably lots of breathing other people’s aerosols, given how much I could smell other substances from other people in places, but still incredible. The people of Valencia have really mastered combustion as art.
