In the lecture in class yesterday there were some examples on art and cybernetics that reminded me of the work of Aaron Koblin, although the project Glyphiti we discussed yesterday was much earlier and open source, not for any personal gain. The concept is basically the same where anonymous participants have a small square to draw in what they like and they can use as many space as they want. It takes some time to draw one square already so making more that are connected takes quite some time and effort. It would also be interesting to make little pictograms or symbols to represent situations or actions, I could try and make a small barcode there too and translate frustrations in recognizable drawings. Another thing that caught my attention was the Lewitt drawings that I also found on YouTube and could be an inspiration for another repeating pop up card;
Then other examples of software structures I can fall in love with, like this one that’s like a fur that’s alive and moving on its own or a fur in a cold pole wind. The pictograms we discussed in the evening were building blocks of information visualization (to be continued).
