Good vibes and interesting statements: Artist Samia Halaby (now 81 years old, in her 50s when she began using computers) about the use of the Amiga computer in her artworks youtube.com/watch?v=sDfIkXf3uz

Added a SortWindow UGen to FScape, so I can calculate histograms from images and apply auto-gain'ed threshold. Here's from a photo I took today in the studio... octodon.social/media/pezPdpf5e

I finally got to make the trailer of + : vimeo.com/257935870

(OpenShot seems to have a broken audio fade filter, I suspect it's an interaction with the overall clip gain; I spent already all day doing this, so I leave it like this for now)

Two more days to apply for our workshop 'Thresholds of the Algorithmic'! On request, I added a section that explains more thoroughly how the workshop is going to be implemented: almat.iem.at/call2018.html

I used up the remaining porcelain today, now I'm a bit sad, I guess I'll order more although it's not cheap.

It stroke me that porcelain (and it probably goes for clay as well) is similar to the human body. I had physiotherapeutic treatment recently and discovered that the body is not 90% water but a large degree of muscle. Working the porcelain is like working the muscles, it becomes easier when it's stimulated, and the force you need to mould is equivalent to the force of your own muscles.

Ok, I didn't take the page layout into account. Putting three fragments now on each square page, going back to 18 base fragments or 6 pages, which is nice because originally everything was based on ternary counting. To get the edges, I'm going away from complete graph, but each vertex has 12 edges.

Here's how the edge set goes: gist.github.com/Sciss/3a243b11
