a little bit writing of the sentiment


Five years ago, one of my good friend Sol who was majored in Print Making started printing on an ancient stone. He told me that all the stones at school are over hundreds years old. For two weeks, i saw him keep feeding the stone every 8 or so hours in order to keep the stone” alive”. The final print was speechless.

One of my friend at ITP asked me what do they do after they graduate and if that practice still existed in my art school. I never understood why they are doing what they did at the tiny fine art collage. I remember they all looked very tired and happy all the time. I liked wonder through our old collage by the coast of Atlantic ocean. Paintings, drawings, ceramics, jewelries,photographs,textile and sculpture….etc.

What problem did my old art collage friends trying to solve? None. Four years of dedication. If the question of ML or CS apply not just in its filed and if the answer is none…

Plato questioned; is circle a perfect human idea.
Archimedes told the soldier not to disturb his circles before he was killed  by his circles. Beethoven kept madly composing after his deaf…

Would the computer scientists kept developing the Hash function if something dramatic happened to them..would they still be passionate finishing their code when they get really really old?
Some of my IT friends comment on working with Fine Art as something bit illusionary and vague …For the past few weeks of reading, i do not know which one is more real anymore.
Now days, new media artists produce projects with new technologies which require the artists to master on the more complex engine that output their work. However, the spirit  of art making remains the same-The motion of crafting. That is to try so many times and so many technics with so much soul to get that “circle” perfect.
Cubist movement is the artists trying to visualize the sense of time and space. Moving image start being popularized. Conceptual artists egger to craft their ideas of their work, however i am not sure if idea can be crafted in a neuter manner. We all can tell if a circle is perfect today and next year. It maintains its shape. Whereas the perfect concept is only applicable in the finite algorithms of the artist’s own. However, conceptual art movement as far as my knowledge covers recognize the gate of technology based artistic projects. The method of singularity start disappearing.


—————–production notes———————————————————————

  • x=a(2 cos t – cos 2t), y= a(2 sin t-sin 2t)
  • This week I have been working on the same curve.

float co[]=new float[365];
this set number acts like water in the pond.
this set of numbers runs through the functions of
f(sin) and f(cos) to get a arrange of numbers that will generate the angle later.
map the set into radians to get a value that is polar coordinate friendly.
The output will not constant 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,…etc
in this case it will be have the number sequence by the Cardioid curve equation.

  • then

x=a(2 cos t – cos 2t)  –>   x=a*(2*cos(-a+b-c)-cos(2*(a+c)+b));
y= a(2 sin t-sin 2t)     –>   y=a*(2*sin(-a+b-c)-sin(2*(a+c)+b));
the matrix ————   ( t, 2*t )   (t, 2*t)         (a b c )  (a b c) ——defined the motion.
(t,2*t)     (t,2*t)         (a b c)    (a b c)

a–>infinite time running through constantly;
b—-> finite time generated by the original set number float co=new float [365];
c—–>is supposed to be the finite time stabilized  (a)
(a)is like the river can only float in those paths (c)

  • end

the sketch is visualizing the two cardioid curves that are generated by x(sine); y(cosine) of the cardioid equation through the set of numbers[ 0,1,2,..... 365].

The middle yellow one is the Subtraction of –f(sin)-f(cos)— of the two curve on the screen.as an artistic application test. http://itp.nyu.edu/~xgz201/15/

what you see on the sketch is not 100%correct yet .
somehow the cosine moves 100 times faster when all the period is the identical.
Also there should not be any fixed point…. the Matrix needs to refine and clean.
