playing with jpeg compression and color curves in gimp. original photo from a blood brother show.

messin around with color curves and jpeg compression. the first image is a photo from a concert. the second image is that after ca. 16 rounds of resizing and jpeg compression to break the original image into blocks of a handful of colors. the last is that image after I messed around with the output levels in gimp’s color curve feature. still figuring out the specifics of the tool, but color palette it leaves you with is wild. messin around with color curves and jpeg compression. the first image is a photo from a concert. the second image is that after ca. 16 rounds of resizing and jpeg compression to break the original image into blocks of a handful of colors. the last is that image after I messed around with the output levels in gimp’s color curve feature. still figuring out the specifics of the tool, but color palette it leaves you with is wild. messin around with color curves and jpeg compression. the first image is a photo from a concert. the second image is that after ca. 16 rounds of resizing and jpeg compression to break the original image into blocks of a handful of colors. the last is that image after I messed around with the output levels in gimp’s color curve feature. still figuring out the specifics of the tool, but color palette it leaves you with is wild.

work plan for a print and some other stuff

carve lino/wood (specific pattern or just at random)
order the scrap by length
divide into quintiles or deciles
make bar graph
reconstitute
print
vector
find area of each scrap-vector (as pct of total)
graph?

print from carved block, same?

Was watching Solaris on YouTube. I was struck by a weird green line on the right edge of the video, and the excellent audio track

reconstituted lino scrap > print > scan > vector trace > scale and decrease opacity according to values generated by the function:

squares <- function() {

opacity <- vector(mode=”numeric”, length=0)

size <- vector(mode=”numeric”, length=0)

x <- 100

while(x > 1) {

opacity <- append(opacity, x)

size <- append(size, 200 - x)

x <- floor(x / runif(1, (1 + 1 / x), (2 + 2 / x)))

}

opsize <- data.frame(opacity, size)

return(opsize)

}

sleep drawing > vector > duplicate layers, decrease opacity + increase size at random intervals within a range
