Have been working on an idea I had for a piece that allows you to stay in touch with a loved one who lives in a different time zone. It is simply a window that allows you to visualize the time of the day where your loved one is. Deliberately made the prototype low tech using shadow puppets.
But the more I worked on it, I realized how I was just taking for granted that it’s okay to want to peer into another’s life. Now feel that I should subtly embed a critique of surveillance into the piece itself.
Came across this very interesting initiative on open source films - Stray Cinema. Watch mine and vote for me on the site!
By the way, it was my first ever try at video editing and there are very evident flaws. But loved the process!
Doing some research into natural language processing. Have been exploring nlp game engines like Inform7. Have been playing around with it, creating a game where you have to burgle my house. Will share the game as soon as I move!
PS - Don’t remember how I came up with the alias
Tried to extend the interactive narrative idea to images. The first thing I found was that it was definitely more difficult to find appropriate and similar (stylistically and thematically) content. Somehow, it wasn’t as satisfying to play around with the images, probably because their meanings weren’t ambiguous enough to allow for an active interaction.
Another short bit of code that I wrote for the creative coding workshop. Allows you to generate a custom word map using the words of Aldous Huxley.
I found it interesting how the process of creating the word map requires you to create connections between the words that you have been given in order to script a sort of story board, if you will.
Try it out here.
Something I created for a short workshop on Creative Coding. The sketch allows you to imitate the style of Piet Mondrian. To use, just left click and drag to draw lines, or right click to fill in colours. You can save the current screen by pressing ‘s’, or change the fill colour by pressing any other key.
See the sketch in action at my processing portfolio.
