I can’t help but think that it would be nice to sometimes travel to these amazing, exotic and imaginative locations, and not have to shoot the locals in the face.

This vision of cool meant a lot to me as a teenager.

(Presumably for ever-so-slightly different reasons.)

random walk video - robert (by Matthew Conroy)

 From  Matthew Conroy: A biased random walk through a video of a friend saying something in french.

When I saw Conor’s videos, I had to try it: cnr.lwlss.net/ConstrainedRandomWalk/

Made with Perl, Csound, and ffmpeg.

………

(I think I will ask my math braniac independent study students this semester if they can cook up a version of this in MaxMSP/Jitter and Processing. If anyone else can get it figured out before then I’d love a tool like this. - Justin)

Here’s my (extremely) quick take on it in processing. It doesn’t have that smooooth granular synthesis feel of the Csound audio, but on the other hand, a random walk of the video is accomplished in only 5 lines including bounds checking. I think the results are pretty effective.

Example output here.

More fun things to try: play with the maxJump and jumpBias vars, change playback speeds with the Move.speed() call, do additional manipulation of the pixels[] array in the draw() call, experiment with different codecs on the input video, 120fps video, rewrite the entire thing doing direct manipulation of the video binary, glitch/datamoshing style.

import processing.video.*;
Movie myMovie;

static float frameDuration = 1.0/30.0;
float maxJump = 2.0;
float jumpBias = .7;

void setup() {
  size(640, 480, P3D);
  myMovie = new Movie(this, "tyra.mov");
  myMovie.play();
  image(myMovie, 0, 0);
}

void draw() {
  float jump = ((randomGaussian() * maxJump) + jumpBias) * frameDuration;
  float newtime = myMovie.time() + jump;
  if(newtime < 0.0)
    newtime = myMovie.time();
  myMovie.jump(newtime);
}

void movieEvent(Movie m) {
  m.read();
  image(m, 0, 0);
}

A sense of “intimacy” , dialogs, electronics are put together into textile, textile has become a platform to carry digital informations which are quoted from my email and SMS relate to my personal ex-relationships. This is my first try to put personal memory, fact and technology together.

If you treat intelligence as sufficiently multi-dimensional, and grasp how much of the human brain is used to coordinate our bodies, you see the chess champion may never catch up to Magic Johnson circa 1984.

…we was all cracking up and then in the middle of it all, Kanye’s phone rings. This is when I knew he was gonna be famous.
He answers the phone, he goes, “Hello. Huh? What? Uh uh, I can’t. I can’t. Cause, I’m at Dave Chappelle’s show watching sketches that nobody’s ever seen before.”
And then he says, “Cause my life is dope, and I do dope shit,” and then he hung up the phone.
