How would you replicate this? (After Effects, track matte/masking)

https://www.instagram.com/p/BK6ygPTDnrz/

So I'm still very new to Processing, going through all the beginner videos Daniel Shiffman put out and going to move on to his more advanced stuff immediately after.

How would you replicate that video though? I'd like to know what techniques you would use, that way I can pay attention to them and those functions when I come across them in my learning. That's a style I really want to replicate.

Childhoods under the lens of humanist documentary photography

The only photography venue in the UK exclusively devoted to documentary, Side Gallery, is about to re-open with an exhibition dedicated to children. Children! Now this is definitely not my favourite subject but a look at the press images made me realize that not everything related to kids needs to be offensively tiresome, uninspiring and jejune:

Also how could it be soporific when the show is handled by Amber, a collective born in the late 1960s with a mission to document working class culture in photos and videos? The new exhibition, called CHILDHOODS, will present work from Amber’s collection, spanning four decades of documentary photography. From 1977 to 2016. From children living in a small coalfield community in the Appalachians, USA to the ones living in today’s marginalized communities.

Sadly, i can’t go to Newcastle and visit the show but i laid my hands on as many press images as i could and have dutifully copy/pasted them below. With, occasionally, a few notes about the photos:

“Tzvika, nine, lives in an apartment block in Beitar Illit, an Israeli settlement in the West Bank. It is a gated community of 36,000 Haredi (Orthodox) Jews. Televisions and newspapers are banned from the settlement. The average family has nine children, but Tzvika has only one sister and two brothers, with whom he shares his room. He is taken by car to school, a two-minute drive. Sport is banned from the curriculum. Tzvika goes to the library every day and enjoys reading the holy scriptures. He also likes to play religious games on his computer. He wants to become a rabbi, and his favourite food is schnitzel and chips.”

“Ahkôhxet is a member of the Kraho tribe, who live in the basin of the river Amazon. There are only 1,900 members of the tribe. The Kraho people believe that the sun and moon were creators of the universe, and the red paint on Ahkôhxet’s chest is from one of his tribe’s rituals. The tribe grow and hunt their own foods, and any other material they need is bought using money earned from film crews and photographers who visit their camp.”

When photographer Lesley McIntyre’s daughter Molly was born in 1984, she was suffering from a muscular abnormality. The doctors thought it was highly unlikely she would survive more than a few weeks or months. But Molly lived until her fourteenth birthday and McIntyre documented her moments of happiness and challenges in the series The Time of Her Life.

Coding in Eclipse/Intelli-J with Processing language?

EDIT: Found one for Sublime Text but the github hasn't been updated in a long time. Seems to work. Prefer to use eclipse though.

I keep finding a number of bugs in the Processing app that are seriously impeding on my workflow and coming from doing most of my dev in eclipse or intelli-j with Java, it would be great to code in those IDE's with processing.

Another thing which I didn't think was going to happen to my 'small' game was the amount of classes it currently has - near on 20 now and looks ridiculous.

So if there's any way to code in eclipse/intelli-j with Processing can you please link me to the plugins/extensions/resources to do it. Program getting long and painful and processing isn't holding up well for it (likely by design).

Much appreciated!

Because sometimes all you need is BATS

Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Bat Opera, 2005

Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, who used to be called Spartacus Chetwynd, was born Alalia Chetwynd. That’s a lovely name of course but it doesn’t have the same punchy resonance as the one of a gladiator who lead a major revolt against the Romans or of the coolest, most brilliant R&B singer that ever was. Whatever her reasons to re-baptize herself so dramatically, she certainly has the spunk and knack to pull it off.

Chetwynd is known for her droll and brash performances. She enrolls amateurs, makes everyone dance, sing and wear hand-made outfits so demented you’re wondering if she didn’t intern at Martin Margiela a decade or two ago: fur sprouting everywhere, most unflattering volumes and wonky lengths. In her riots you meet pop culture and high brow references. Michael
 Jackson’s Thriller and the Canterbury Tales. Rabelais and Star Wars villains. But also super ugly creatures, giant turtles, merry cats. It’s a bit like the Bacchanalia but with more clothes on. Or what passes for clothes in Chetwynd’s world.

The artist was invited by Rhea Dall and Kristine Siegel from PRAXES to participate to the Bergen Assembly triennial with a programme made of an exhibition archive of some of her most eccentric performance costumes and props, workshops, performances and other gatherings bearing titles such as Iron Age Pasta Necklace Workshop and it’s not bald spot it’s a solar panel for a sex machine (Episode Three).

There’s a lot of the frenzy described above at the various Bergen Assembly events featuring Chetwynd’s works but there’s also a small exhibition of decidedly odd but ultimately charming bat portraits in the lobby of the City Hall of Bergen. I had never heard of that series before but i immediately wanted the little mammals to be part of my blog.

Quietly lined up against the rock and concrete wall, the Bat Opera paintings show the little creatures in all shapes, sizes and settings. Bat faces, bats in groups, bats high in the sky, bats spreading wings, bats that look tragic, defiant, deep.

The series has followed Chetwynd through a personal archeology of painting techniques and styles. Cute and horrendous, corny and ferocious, the Bat Opera paintings are tangentially linked to an eponymous live performance by Chetwynd, which, in turn, took inspiration from the opulent glam rock performer Meat Loaf’s epic album Bat Out of Hell—a churning amalgam of beauty and beast that utterly fascinates the artist.

This is my last story about the exciting and eclectic Bergen Assembly. Before i close this series, I need to salute Tim Schmitt and Anne Büttner from HORT did all the graphic design of the Bergen Assembly. I kept admiring their work throughout my stay in the Norwegian city. Just a couple images:

Distance from origin or the location of our translation point when working in 3d?

Hi all. I'm new to using processing for 3d and i need to be able to determine the distance between the origin or our current translation point (like, the point where we are in x,y,z space. if we can call a function like box(5) and it appears somewhere I assume we are storing where it should appear internally).

For anyone curious im making l-system trees https://m.imgur.com/account/sawyerwelden/images/eNUAZO5 and would like to decrease branch thickness based on distance from the ground or the trunck

Edit: fixed link

How do I get the ball to bounce of the rectangle?

I've successfully been able to get a ball moving in a sinus-curve, and change color at different locations of the window. But I have no idea about how I can get the ball to bounce of the rectangle, that u can draw with the mouse. It was easy enough to do it with the side of the window, since it's just one fixed position, but not so with the rectangle. Anything I try either bugs the program, or doesn't do what I want it to do. Some help and especially explanation is greatly appreciated. Here is the code until now:

float speed; float x; float y; float angle; int a, b, c, d; void setup(){ size(600,600); speed = 2; y = 50; a=0; b=0; c=0; d=0; } void draw() { background(0); if (x>= 0 && x <= 300){ fill(255, 0, 0); } else if (x>= 300 && x <= 450){ fill(0, 255, 0); } else if (x>= 450 && x <= 600){ fill(0, 0, 255); } y = 50*sin(angle)+height/2; angle += 0.1; noStroke(); ellipse(x, y, 20, 20); x += speed; if (x >= 591){ speed = -2; } else if (x < 10){ speed = 2; } pushMatrix(); fill(255); rect(a, b, c, d); popMatrix(); } void mousePressed() { a=mouseX; b=mouseY; } void mouseDragged() { c=mouseX-a; d=mouseY-b; rect(a, b, c, d); }
