"The German artist’s work has explored the intersection of high technology and casual labor"

"In my opinion, people struggling to position a dripping blood animation in between two skulls and under <marquee>ENTER IF YOU DARE</marquee>, and pick up an appropriate MIDI tune to sync with the blood drip, made an important contribution to showing the beauty and limitation of web browsers and HTML code."
"I had no privacy when living with my parents. My parents would walk in on me with a partner all the time. It was embarrassing and mortifying and demoralizing. I hated it with every fiber of my being. Nowhere felt like home because nowhere felt safe, private, and my own."
"I am repeatedly told that I cannot be angry if I want transformative change—that the expression of anger and rage as emotions are wrong, misguided, and counter-productive to the movement. The underlying message in such statements is that we, as Indigenous and Black peoples, are not allowed to express a full range of human emotions. We are encouraged to suppress responses that are not deemed palatable or respectable to settler society. But the correct emotional response to violence targeting our families is rage."
I'm building a digital garden in Jekyll. And it's easier than I thought.
Stackoverflow and the GitHub forum are becoming my best friends, plus, I'm starting the get to grips with the Ruby environment.
I'm using Maxime Vanillancourt's Jekyll garden template.
EDIT: I am still gardening, though my full-time job is taking precious time away from being able to code as much as I want to. So, I'm looking at ways to make space in my week to reclaim my creative space back. There will be updates.
Some of the things I have learned while working on How to feel more at home (the website):
- I have a better understanding of jQuery, SASS (Scss), Compass, NPM, and Git.
- I know how to implement p5js in a webpage with other elements (not created via p5js) and libraries.
- I understand how to make Tone.js work on most desktop and mobile browsers.
Happy new year y'all! We have a new flower blossomed from the organised dirt that is this channel:
"How to feel more at home" turns into an interactive work and takes the form of a website. The contents of the site articulate personal ideas of home, what (and who) makes one, and how to find meaning living inbetween homes.
As a digital artist who relies on computers to make art, it isn't easy to work during a lockdown. If you're an artist with a full-time WFH "laptop" job and you still want to keep working on creative projects on the side, staring at a screen for 7 hours on end can turn you into a zombie. Nevermind being a mood-killing for your creativity. So, where do you find the strength and energy to keep typing on the keyboard—even if this time is to make something you enjoy?
This is a space for curiosity and reflection. I'd like this garden to inspire and motivate me to keep improving my coding skills.
Learning to make work with code can be equal parts beautiful and frustrating experience. More often than you would want, things don't work—they behave unexpectedly. And sometimes that's great. Other times it can be a bummer.
So, as the lines above suggest, this garden is a personal support tool. And I will keep it alive as long as my passion for making work on the internet will exist. Imagine a private space a private space, a garage, where I'm working with the door open. Everyone can see inside, but the way I build things is sometimes only known to me. And I try to build in real-time, which means that entries on this channel aren't all complete thoughts.

Some of my inspirations:
"Sunlight is a rare appearance in this flat' was the first what we established when we moved here last October. In fact, it is so rare that most days we will not notice its presence. At least four plants –– rosemary and I believe mint –– have died in the first week, a few more –– later. Those who survived, have adapted and etiolated, meaning they have changed their patterns of growths, as well as their form, having bent and curved towards the window, desperate for light. Because of its scarcity, I came up with a game, jokingly at first, less so in the process –– documenting the sunspots with my phone camera whenever they appear. This rather ridiculous collection of rare sunlight appearances has become an archive of our everyday life."
