polybius squares, boxes, and shaders
online gallery I curate for has a little project called "Yours, AML Space" where we send around a box and decorate it as we are fit and this is my little contribution. Made something in #p5js to generate stylized depictions of polybius squares ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polybius_square ) showing the positions within the square and the sides showing in dots the rows and columns the letters lay in the square when encoded. The squares say "CONNECTION" and are overlaid a picture I took from the... Denver airport I think? Some airport a long time ago and I used a fragment shader to basically reverse the colors where the square bits are.
The little blurb I've been posting along with this picture is: "a connection based on the same shared earth, underneath the same big sky." because I suppose particularly for me its easy to forget we're all in this same physical world together even though we might not see each other physically? and it seemed fitting for this project.
