F A A Code - A Step Back To May 2021. New Names Please...

I have turned the clock back to May. I spent the summer exploring the potential for recording my (thousands of) digital outcomes here. To some extent, it was a wasted summer. But, I did confirm, I don't have what it takes to sell here. So, I have reverted to using my Pixels Premium account as a gallery space for my site specific F A A CODE outcomes. Now, I am very happy with the current series of 61 images (I usually call them outcomes, if you hadn't noticed). But, I am open to adding more component outcomes. For each new component, I need a name to seed my algorithm. It would be ideal to get another batch of 16 names. So, if you want to donate your name, here are the two threads with the details and how the first batch of 16 went. There's also a list of those names already coded in the first batch. To donate your name, give permission in this new thread.

/showmessages.php?messageid=6484735

/showmessages.php?messageid=6168194

This time, I am in no rush. If it takes a while to get new names, or none are offered, then that's just fine.

I was happy for you to use my name on the first 'round'. My 'coded' t-shirt is a favorite.

Is this some sort of "Loom of fate" from the movie 'Wanted' ?..you know that 'your name came out' thing?

 

REVAD David Riley

9 Days Ago

Not something I am familiar with Tibor. I could simply use any piece of text to seed my algorithm, but it has proven to be more enjoyable when other people connect with the work, by permitting me to use their names. I could just use names and not say who. The cipher in the algorithm is not easily reversed. No one would know. But I don't do that, as it reduces the enjoyment. My only agenda is to grow the series of outcomes.

Thanks Liz.

Thanks Joy, for breaking the ice!

So, a new list of names begins. I will number as a continuation of the first phase, which used 999, and 000 to 013. 999 was a special full coding for Abbie.

Ideally, I would wait until I have a few names before starting. So, I will give it a few days.

For the moment, this series carry prices I do not expect anyone to pay. This relates to a spin-off concept expressed in a related outcome.

Canvas Art

Should anyone show any real interest, individual prices may be negotiable. I sold one t-shirt, at a standard price, from the first batch. Thank you. I could, of course, have set no prices, but then the outcomes would not appear on any of the products, and these are an intentional part of the exhibition. But, let's not get into a sales discussion here. These are artistic concept decisions and nothing to do with selling. Any sales are a side-effect.

A brief explanation. My process uses an algorithm seeded by a sequence of letters. The algorithm places coloured bars on a square. The position size and colour are relative to the sequence of letters. Using names, with approval, adds an extra human dimension by creating a connection with the named person. Although, without knowing the name, it would be difficult to reconstruct it from the image. So, the image can be considered a one way visual cypher of the name. All of this is just my way of limiting the infinite possibilities. In the end it is the aesthetic of the outcome that is important, not how it was achieved. Here is my name.



I’m going to be busy over the weekend. I’ll add any new names [to the list] on Monday.

Thank you all for your support.

PPS. On review, nine new names will make for a good PHASE 2 group. So, this coming week, I will work with the nine names. Any additional names will become part of PHASE 3.

THANK YOU!

I have 10 new names to work with, this week, and 24 in all (I have moved SD into phase 2). This is sufficient for now. Any new names will go on a waiting list for phase 3. I have no idea when or if phase 3 will occur. But, feel free to add your name and I will list it as waiting.

This week, I will fire up the algorithms and see what pops out of the creative process.

I have listed you in PHASE 2.

I updated the last list I posted.

I have found a tweak to the algorithm, that I like. So, the PHASE 2 outcomes will be similar but different to the PHASE 1. At least, that's how things look today. I'll sleep on it and see where tomorrow's studio session takes me.

I have uploaded outcomes for three more names, four outcomes per name, one each in the four collections: F A A CODE 1, F A A CODE 4, F A A CODE 16, and F A A CODE PANO. All the outcomes, in these collections, start with the unique three digit username code. I'll be loading another batch of outcomes tomorrow. I have dropped the idea of phases. New names will be added to the list, as they occur, and I will process them as time allows. I also decided to continue using the original algorithm, to populate the existing collections. I may add a new collection using a tweaked algorithm. If I do, I will process all names through the new algorithm. In the meantime, enjoy...
