A very simple initialization process:
1. Assigning pins
2. Turning on and off every OUTPUT pin in sequence to see if all parts are working
3. ready to press the button and count some numbers xD
My progress with my arduino after playing around with the 7-Segment display, an - - LED and a button:
I tested the pins of the display and arranged the cables in the least confusing way.
- I wrote a program to drive the display (an array of pin modes so i can tell it to display something and a for loop to turn the pins on/off)
-I hooked up a button as an input, with a pull-down resistor on pin 12
- an LED on pin 13 that turns on when i press the button
Here a messy way to tell you how it’s wired xD
Pins 2-9 -> display -> ground
5v -> button -> pin 12 & 1K pull-down resistor
Pin 13 -> LED -> 100 ohm resistor -> Ground
There are two things that are happening simultaneously with me. ✴
First, there is the artist that is intrigued by what I’m seeing. The paint is surprising me. I am discovering, losing, and finding. My compulsion to paint starts with a really simple curiosity. I ask myself questions like, “What happens when I mix this with this?” … “What happens when I lay this color on top?” ... “What if I totally remove this section?" … etc. As the image develops, it starts looking back at me and a dialog has been created. I'm free to change my mind at any time. I'm experimenting. I'm not planning. ✴
Then, there is the someone who is growing through experiences and trying to record them through art. Addictions. Relationships. Stress. Validation. Victories. Failures. Emotions. Regrets. Thoughts. Beliefs. Lessons. I feel like I’m constantly learning about myself and others, which is always inspiring me and giving me new ideas. This is also why I'm super excited for the Enneagram project to form in my work because its going to force me to really analyze each personality type and specific experiences. It's intimidating but exciting.
