Heath Bunting - Intimacy Encryption Workshop

In a time of surveillance capitalism, privacy requires some radical
methods. A workshop in how to communicate secretly over any media using nothing more than sharing some special time together. Used very effectively by former fluffy groups such as Irish Republican Army and Palestine Liberation Organization. Heath Bunting is a contemporary British artist born in 1966. Based in Bristol, he is the founder of the site irational.orgwith Daniel García Andújar, Rachel Baker and Minerva Cuevas and was one of the early practitioners in the 1990s of net.art. Bunting's work is based on creating open and democratic systems by modifying communications technologies and social systems.

Sensible analysis of image datasets through ImageJ

By Doreen A. Rios

Min. participants 5
Max. participants 20

Duration 4h.

Price students/concessions £15
Price adults £20
Tickets tickettailor.com/events/iklect

Tools:
- Laptop
- ImageJ (download here imagej.nih.gov/ij/download.htm )
- About 20 – 30 images in .jpg, preferably in 720px

This workshop aims to build basic knowledge for the use of ImageJ (free software) for the visualization of image datasets. It focuses on creating and understanding the visual patterns provided by the chosen image set and explores how to use it for both research and/or artistic creation. In the same way, a theoretical framework will be provided and will expand into what does DataViz means as well as its different forms and uses and how it has been integrated into contemporary artistic creation.

During the first hour we’ll be looking into the historical part of DataViz and during the last 2 hours we’ll be developing a series of exercises using ImageJ, for which we’ll need an image data set (about 20 – 30 images in .jpg, preferably in 720px) and a laptop with the software installed (you can find it here imagej.nih.gov/ij/download.htm ).

From this workshop, you can expect to learn how to produce 2D images, animations and short videos in which you can see a colour analysis from a selected image set.

Dark theme. Soon to be made runtime switchable (instead of needing to find the bit in the source code, change it, and recompile).

Also dashed lines with a drop down to chose the pattern (not depicted in the attached image).

The influencing island has period 3, with external angles `.(011) .(100)`. The central island has period 22 (external angles above), and is in the hair at the tip of the most-clockwise spoke of the 2/5 bulb of the period 3 island. Its angled internal address is 1_1/2->2_1/2->3_2/5->15_1/2->22.

ARTFUTURA 2019 - PROCESSING THE FUTURE

Today we live in the present future more than ever. We talk about the Anthropocene and a new phase in human evolution, augmented and reconnected by technology.

Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence and Internet (IoT) will converge to create Collective Artificial Intelligence, whose language will be virtual reality and neurodigital telepathy. This will be the future, a world of expanded reality.

new mathr.co.uk/kf/kf.html#kf-2.14

- feature: SIMD support for accelerated perturbation calculations at shallow-to-moderate zoom depths.
- feature: Newton-Raphson zooming completion estimate (number of steps)
- feature: Newton-Raphson zooming progress backups (after each step)
- feature: fewer required fields when loading location parameters (allows loading the NR-zoom backups)
- feature: directional DE stored in EXR as `DEX` and `DEY` channels, and used for slopes colouring with `Analytic` differences (requires derivatives, fixes noisy texture when jitter is enabled)
- feature: 64bit iteration count support (limit is now 9 exa-iterations up from 2 giga-iterations), use EXR for export. This feature is very experimental, I haven't had the patience to test it properly. Please report back success or failure.
- note: periods are still 32bit and limited to 2 giga-iterations
- bugfix: command line --save-exr now sets non-interactive mode flag.
- note: built for 64bit only; 32bit hardware is obsolete by now.
- note: distribution package compressed with 7-zip for smaller size.
- upgrade to openexr 2.4.0
- upgrade to mingw64 g++ 9.2.1-8+22~exp1 (Debian experimental) and rebuild everything

I think I fixed it!

When Xr and Xi are small, (Xr * Xi) can to 0, so ((Xr * Xi) * S) is 0 already, Changing the multiplication order to ((Xr * S) * Xi) seems to work much better!

The risk of to infinity in (Xr * S) is probably none, because Xr is small (less than escape radius) but I should double-check deep zooms near the 1e600 threshold for switching from scaled double to long double.

mathr.co.uk/kf/kf.html#kf-2.14 new KF release with EXR support (now you can do postwork without getting banding or other colour artifacts so easily) and other features+bugfixes

I fixed it by rewriting the code with a new approach tracking Provenance (which shader(s) the uniform is active in) of widget changes, instead of having multiple VariableEditors which was causing too many headaches (and I think that was ultimately a bad approach).

```
fract(0.5 * dwell + time / 3.0) < 0.5
? vec3(1.0, 0.0, 0.0)
: vec3(1.0);
```

Where dwell (aka ) is computed 4x per pixel for image-space distance estimation (because using dFdx and dFdy on computed data is too low-resolution and fraught with peril in the event of incoherent control flow, works fine for the input smooth coordinates to know where to offset the 4x dwell computations).

For some reason I always seem to end up with that look a bit like insects

Hacked on some C++ code, to make a Logarithmic mode for sliders in Fragmentarium, most useful for the Camera2D Zoom shader uniform variable.
