Thesis Experiment #7: Printing Code

I met with Rune last Friday, he saw my current sketches and highly recommend me to print them out onto the paper. I also told him that I wasn’t very confident about my topic and approach, especially when I compare with other people who bring kinda new technology or a new way of the technology. From his perspective, he suggested me to focus on my concept and personal experience first, and then he asked me “why not making a series of self-portrait.”kinda new technology or a new way of the technology. From his perspective, he suggested me to focus on my concept and personal experience first, and then he asked me “why not making a series of self-portrait.”

It totally makes sense to me. Recently, I had many conversations with other people to talk about my idea, and I actually listen to all of their suggestions and can’t help with self-doubt. Each person has their own perspective and different approach. I couldn’t apply all their ideas on my own work and lose myself in the end.

I really like the idea of making self-portrait. I plan to go to some places and have my application shot a snapshot on me. Each places should have a story behind it and interpret with the specific algorithm that I use.

I make a pdf-render function in Processing and rendered a few of high-resolution from Processing during the capturing time. I went to Pratt and stand in front of a sculpture. My friend hold my computer and run the application.
