trying to think of ways to be net positive. 


went to the climate march which was like a parade. didnt go to flood wallstreet. probably should have swapped. feeling like the only thing that wil induce awareness radical enough to affect climate chnage is a disaster followed by a regime of climat-o-fascists. or clamato-fascists?

The several ways to think of and define a system include:

All the parts of a system must be related (directly or indirectly), else there are really two or more distinct systems A system is encapsulated, has a boundary. The boundary of a system is a decision made by an observer, or a group of observers. A system can be nested inside another system. A system can overlap with another system. A system is bounded in time. A system is bounded in space, though the parts are not necessarily co-located. A system receives input from, and sends output into, the wider environment. A system consists of processes that transform inputs into outputs. A system is autonomous in fulfilling its purpose.

types of interaction for tone.js

as a frame for tone.js, i want to discuss several types of audio interactivity—existing and speculative — for the browser. 

songs generated in the browser

participatory model (time based) 

negotiating parameters 

digital audio workstation

- including synthesizers, sequencers

participatory model over sockets (time based)

participatory model (ambient)

tumblr when you have literally almost no followers or whatever they’re called here is a pretty safe space for the digital world


oh right

if you write enough at a computer can it start writing like you for you is a central question


first post

just now without realizing it i’ve gotten into something completely different. took a workshop with ana boziecevic  and sophia le fraga at BHFQ today, was prompted to write about yves klein void. 

obviously there is a gap here between what we see and what is happening. obviously, there is a gap here between what we see here and what happened. is there though a gap between what we see here and what’s happening? it’s obvious that something happened. it’s obvious that something happened. but also, when i, for one, see here what is happening, i think first: what will happen?

i think second: wait what happened? and slowly, slowly, slowly, it becomes obvious what happened. it becomes obvious what has happened it becomes obvious what has happened. and i say it becomes obvious what is happening well shit i’m glad i figured it out then out or am i? 

anyway while i was there i thought about taking a poetry workshop and like literally hijaking it and taking it to a place to clean up trash or talk to a stranger or something at least.

interesting conversation about writing versus publishing in taeyoon’s memory class. that’s why i am starting doing this. starting doing this.
