Enter 2021...

So many things happened in 2020 it's hard to keep it all straight. I was accepted into a Grad program, attended campus, recieved high marks and a 4.0. Moved from Troy to Buffalo. Worked through the pandemic and was a federal census employee while exploring an unfamiliar city. Learned coding and new media theory. Learned to be more direct and less uncertain. Realized how dependable my friends and family are. Packed up all my possessions from a 5 year stay. Found a nice apartment but had to withstand brutal isolation. Being more authentic and loving around my partner. Gained more fiscal and spiritual wisdom.

2021 is still screwed and we're still adapting but I'll keep going all out anyway. I just want to be stronger and not stand still. A better writer, filmmaker, and theorist.

My first semester is over. Happy that I recieved an A for Physical Computing. The class was hard. Starting with frustration, confusion, and isolation I wasn't very motivated by all the new learning. I was the least experienced and most problematic student. By the end my filmmaking meshed with new electromics and coding knowledge. During all the highs lows I learned how to handle new content and then break down and rearrange concepts instead of being rigid. The class also showed me how advanced math I learned in grade school is applicable for code, something no teacher ever said. Yet even at 31 my tumultuous relationship with resisting math lessons came back with a vengeance here. People have called me a computer guy when I only knew bits. Now I kinda am a computer person since I'm proud of the project. Math and code are inseparable from digital video and every filmmaker should know something about coding. Video recording coming up next...

You Can(t) See Me Now! (Web Film)

Taking a computing class has been a funny artistic progression this semester. I went from serial electronics and javascript to a video installation which then became a performance and has ended up being a web-film.

My classmates and teachers commented on how this creation is one big remediation of space and cubic perception via video surveillance technologies. Also how its time period could be anywhere from 1973-2000, which of both numbers I like to hear.

It was performed live yesterday through zoom but here is a desktop recording of the web page.

What do you think when you see Evolution? For me, the process of making this image is like biological growth. It starts as a feeling takes a form slowly then finalized on a computer. Printed, evaluated, felt again. Then drawn atop of the print and scanned once more. Organisms observe, feel, do, and then plan what it means to do again and again.

It's just #analogtodigital and then #digitaltoanalog all over again...

As much as I like animation it's a lot of labor of love. Fortunately through p5.js I can animate just with code. Basic random shape color brush I made in a web editor.
