Further mapping out the current mastodon universe around #opensource digital art software
These folks are already here
These folks are hashtagged alot
Those are the hashtags people generally use
Obviously I might be missing some, this is a quick search
Music used to be a fractal thing, produced locally, consumed locally, with infinite variation, from village to village, but quite stable over generations
Nowadays industrialization / consumerism created well organized, delocalized musical genres that have global reach but change regularly (at least a few times for each generation)
Not sure what to make of it. Just a realization that musical space and time swapped roles so to speak
Was wondering if anybody ever thought of #generativeart using d3.js Sure enough there are some traces around in the blogosphere but was expecting a bit more. Maybe the API is too low level
Hello everyone. Hello bots. I have joined mastodon.art to be in the company of artistic people and to enjoy some free brain stimulus. One day I might be able to reciprocate but my track record is not good. I like too many things. Generative art is a perennial favorite. Modal music to my ears. Developer by day and night. Love all things #opensource, #linux and #fediverse
ok, the random tartan generator using #python/svgwrite is finally working. Had to learn some #svg feBlend basics which is pretty powerful feature https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/SVG/Element/feBlend
on to the next bot challenge, the random tree generator :-)
A few small notes on CWs and images marked sensitive:
1) Make sure when you CW/mark sensitive, you also describe *why* you're CWing it. People need to know what's under the cut/image blur so they can make an informed decision about viewing it.
2) When deciding whether to mark something as sensitive, try to think: If I viewed this image at work would I get in trouble? Even if your explicitly sexy/lewd artwork has the naughty bits censored, it's still kind to CW/mark it as sensitive.
I am running a open/public wiki with reasonable traffic (given its a rather specialized domain) but having trouble getting people to contribute content. Trying to think of some incentive scheme (apparently recognition is not sufficient), maybe matching potential sponsors to content authors.
Looking at #opencollective for ideas but it seems its mostly used for #opensource software. Anybody can point to something like that in operation? A bit reluctant to go boldly where nobody went before...
Did you know anywhere you see a like button on an article or a FB-enabled comment section, you're being tracked by Facebook even if you're not signed in?
I am pretty excited about the whole #opensource thing. Can't think of some other development in those absurd, incoherent, nasty times that is more or less just... good
the Venice Biennale happens every two years apparently https://www.labiennale.org/en/art/2019
@Saule I only do this as a hobby, for self expression and as a way to work through my feelings. If only someone would pay me for it! 😆
And yeah, I do everything myself. Occasionally someone else will take the picture, like my husband or a photographer friend, but that's pretty rare.
35 days to go! A few people have asked about the possibility of a physical collection of this project, in book or mag form, so I'm looking into options that balance cost and quality. Just for my information as I look around, how many of you would be willing or able to buy a book? And if you're comfortable answering this: how much might you be willing to spend? No judgement or pressure at all! This is purely reconnaissance.
Lastly, an enormous thank you for all the love! 💕
rip Rutger Hauer. Your dying monologue in blade runner is one of the cinema's moments that touched me deeply (along we many others I think)
Maybe because we all know there comes a moment where the incredible things we all saw near our mind's Tanhausser gate will be lost in time like tears in rain...

Kyoto Animation is a progressive animation studio that truly embodied the idea of gentle art that healed the heart.They were also a house of some of the most proficient animators of natural movement in our generation Please consider donating to help them #PrayForKyoani
Here is the donation page http://gf.me/u/t6y3fh
Please consider donating if you enjoy their stuff. It's an abhorrent tragedy about what has happened.
