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 to generate stylized depictions of polybius squares ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polybius ) 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.

back on my polybius square game, have to find other relatively basic encoding schemes that could be potentially visually interesting

finished "a place further than the universe" about highschool girls becoming friends and going to antarctica (which i mean is what all proper friends do really please i want to see wild penguins + aurora borealis) and it is so ridiculously full of heartwarm + wholesome

achievement: I can ride down 1/3 of my driveway and navigate all those slight bumps and slope changes onto the street and stay on and also get on my board on a gentle slope I am such an extreme skateboarder now you don't even wanna know ๐Ÿ›น๐Ÿ”ฅ

here's a picture of said 1/3, yeah I totally conquered that:

experimented with and reversing colors last year in that I should get back to at some point. had these ideas of the worlds of "nature" and "digital-sorta aesthetics" (vague ideas I know) intermingling in various ways...

got myself a cruiser and guess I'm now entering the getting into skateboarding part of my life. 2020 just keeps coming with more surprises am i rt

air is starting to smell like sitting right next to a campfire and feel a bit harsh... mb not so good to breathe in

i have been futzing around with conchospirals in and the way i have this one colored looks plaid-ish in wireframe and i don't wear plaid but i would totally wear a conchospiraly plaid shirt

I was in Joshua Tree earlier in the year and some tomatoes momentarily got loose and so began the Joshua Tree tomato races
