Leaving to etextile Summercamp on Monday in As I don't want to take my rigid heddle loom, I have started preparing some samples, which should become capacitive touch sensors.

Using a Copper Karl Grimm thread in the warp, weaving another conductive thread in there (20% stainless steel, 80% polyester)
I used the clasped weft technique in the conductive (grey) zones. On my rigid heddle loom, in the kitchen..

Networks with an Attitude

---> Public events on 10, 11 and 13/04 in Antwerpen, Belgium

The internet is dead, long live the internets! In 2025, the internet will consist of either gated communities or decentralised independent instances. For those who want to be connected while choosing their own dependencies, there is no other option than to draw up new networks and experiment with both historical and innovative protocols.

Networks with an Attitude is a six-day worksession organised by Constant. During this intensive week we stretch the imagination of what a network is, and what it can be. Three public moments will open up the process, beginning of April.

This morning at 7:50 we did an action on bd Lambermont, Heliotrope(s)(n) with 1030/0 to commemorate an accident and to put attention on safety for pedestrians and cyclists in Schaarbeek Brussels.

Last week a grandmother and two children got run over by a car at this pedestrian crossing, because the lights were not working.
(All victims are no longer in mortal danger. The car involved stopped and helped.)

The lights are fixed, the crossing time is very short.
Lots of press (it's the neighbourhood where the press/tv people live) and politicians.. (elections in May)

What makes me really sad that this road was going to be altered in 2009 and because of a political change the plans got cancelled.

Not interlaced and glitched versus interlaced and glitched

It has a more 'embroidered' look..

When you interlace your png with imagemagick, the glitches made afterwards really make their pixels shine.

$convert /path/to/your/image.png -interlace Line /path/to/your/interlaced_image.png

(imagemagick has 2 main types of interlacing: )

--> run pnglitch after interlacing (see 1/2 toot)

Excellent demo of Pnglitch, a little commandline tool/library

$sudo gem install pnglitch
There are four main glitch filters are possible:

(or from 1 to 4)

To use them on your image:
$pnglitch /path/to/your/image.png --filter=Average /path/to/your/glitcchhh.png

To change the parameters of the glitches, you have to dive in deeper..
