April 2nd, Stammtisch #84
Worked with Processing and other non-web technologies before, but because of staying more at home, he switched to p5.js projects. He shows two of them:
Pixel based mandalas, working on Hic et Nunc. It uses the public key of the viewer to generate a unique pattern. https://sandromiccoli.github.io/crypto/pixel_mandala/
Platonic shapes, solid or wireframe, rendered with Blender and then processing using ML algorithms to style them in interesting ways. https://sandromiccoli.github.io/crypto/latent_solids/
Talks about creating an alternative to Hic et Nunc, or a forum for discussions around art and possible ways to work as a creative / artist, and his plans to release some of his work on HeN.
Show the result of a program that generates a binary pattern (zeros and ones) combined with the image of a lotus flower. When creating it she noticed there’s an issue in p5.js with hyphenation. So she fixed it and sent a pull request on GitHub. Her first contribution to the framework.
Text wrapping function should be included in next release -> https://github.com/processing/p5.js/pull/5146
Second, she got an invite to use the GPT-3 text-processing machine learning platform. “Ask the mystical magic 8-ball”. She can not show the results to larger groups of people. She thinks GPT-2 is better for creative purposes because it can be fine tuned, unlike version 3.
Show work in progress using Touch Designer. It uses the webcam as input and creates some kind of wavy noisy landscape. Actually a bug, but she finds it beautiful. She wants to achieve a painting-like aesthetic / pointillism.

Bruce: I’m live-coding on sunday for this event
Taru: technique gallery has now a memorable URL (maybe not final)
Kazik: follow up we did on the last Jam https://creativecodeberlin.github.io/creative-code-algorithms-and-techniques/
Movie poster generator made in TouchDesigner. Visualizes color of movies. Shows posters for many known movies.
Generative designs limited to circles and a few colors (using POVray). Shows hundreds of iterations while approaching the final results.
