worldFaking

Here is the most recent incarnation of the worldFake project. Clicking on a rotating orb will reveal a 360 scene. Using a standard trackpad or mouse scroll, the viewer is able to maneuver around the scene, zoom in and out and move the worlds around. Pressing space bar will reveal one of the three videos at random. The viewer is located outside the smaller videos but inside the larger one. Clicking “save world” stores the unique information: logging the x, y and z values for each of the smaller 360 videos.

i successfully rewrote a part of my midterm as a function – huzzah! the only problem is sometimes it doesn’t work. i know it is something on line 41/42. how can i make a function out of the phrase.append portion? i know it can… i think, maybe. or whatever.

so sometimes it works, something is off...

All semester I’ve been continuing to learn javascript. Specifically 2D design in Rune.js. It’s been great to focus on manifesting the logic of programming visually. Like learning to think by drawing or draw by thinking? I dunno – math, or something. Weekly exercises in how to use computation to create multiplicity. Try refreshing this poster design – infinite variations! Uh oh…

Goodnite In any or every place; in all places. See Usage Note at everyplace.

Goodnite The hue of that portion of the visible spectrum lying between yellow and blue, evoked in the human observer by radiant energy with wavelengths of approximately 490 to 570 nanometers; any of a group of colors that may vary in lightness and saturation and whose hue is that of the emerald or somewhat less yellow than that of growing grass; one of the additive or light primaries; one of the psychological primary hues.

Goodnite Present participle of whisper.

Goodnite Containing all that is normal or possible:  a full pail.

Goodnite A visual representation or image painted, drawn, photographed, or otherwise rendered on a flat surface

Goodnite Two corresponding persons or items, similar in form or function and matched or associated:  a pair of shoes.

Goodnite Small in size:  a little dining room.  See Synonyms at small.

Goodnite A well-mannered and considerate woman with high standards of proper behavior.

I started working with Goodnight Moon, but then decided I wanted to challenge myself to work with longer sentences. Inserting the defintion of the words for “camera”, “machine”, “pencil”, etc, as they appear in Walter Benjamin, but I lost time when it came to creating a dictionary to hold them. More to come. I also would like to fix the Goodnight Moon code as right now it returns the string “Goodnight” and I do not want it to.

For the midterm, I generated a series of poems that pull from Gertrude Stein‘s the Making of Americans. The program searches an excerpt of her text and stores all the words containing “ing” and are five letters or longer. One is chosen at random as well as four or five words of my own devising to create a phrase, which is then iterated over and over in all the possible permutations. I call them: word forWor(l)ds, computer generated poems, comprised of every possible combination of words in the phrase.

The program pulls randomly from five lists each containing a different category of words. One of the lists itself is called at random. This contains the words: not, or, maybe, if and or whatever in order to create an instability in the phrase being generated. The key python function the form relies on is iteratools permutations – probably my favorite piece of code ever written. I have a feeling I’m going to be using it a lot.

I did not strip or sort through the line breaks, capitalization and other formatting differences in the Stein text because I liked the way it could act on the text breaking up the rhythm both visually and verbally. Also, gives a nice trace of computer speak like the following poem with the “\n” which we all know means “new line”.
