Material Potential 17-03-10

The photograph shown below was taken by Tom Schofield. It shows two Telegraphic works which I presented at the Digital Cultures Research Group curated event Material Potential on the 10th March 2017. The first work is a meccano beacon, which uses a USB relay to flash Morse code messages; the second work is a command line recreation of a Wheatstone Cooke Five Needle Telegraph.

HSS8121: 7stories – chapbooks

Following on from the late shows I have uploaded for sharing images of my own collection of chapbooks. Some are reproductions of 19thC originals, others are my own design derived from the original form.


DMS8012: The Late Shows 17-05-20

I built an array of meccano controllers for this evening of live electronics. Pictures can be seen here:

In the words of Oscar Wilde “To expect the unexpected shows a thoroughly modern intellect.”. Unfortunately my thoroughly outdated intellect did not anticipate a darkened room and the performance suffered from the fact that I could not see to plug anything in. Fortunately I had a MIDI controller available which I could use instead.

Images of patches used in the performance are shown below.

The audio files linked below were created in rehearsal for the event.

I also presented an FM radio transmission work, an extended version of which will be presented in Culture lab on the evening of 30th May.

DMS8012: Victorian Synth

In response to seminar lead by Prof. J.M. Bowers where he demonstrated not only Victorian beard, but also Victorian Synth I spent an enjoyable afternoon at home constructing the same. I also experimented with relays and a 6v buzzer, but I did not inhale.

Pictorial evidence can be viewed here:

HSS8121: Reflection

What interests me the most about this course is that we can get involved with different artists in different areas. For example, I quite enjoyed the walking tour with Tim Shaw. We were not supposed to talk to each other or play cellphones during the walking. This gave me an opportunity to listen to the sound around us. I still remembered when we walked into the lift in the M&S, that was the first time I never spoke to people in the lift full of people I know. And the solar sound, which using the light as the power for the little speaker. It’s interesting the speaker made weird sound under different lights.

Speaking of the ice melting experiment , I’m not a fan of it. I can’t really get the point of the experiment and the process was tough as I had to bear the freezing ice in my hand and finally got nothing from it.

The Yossarian ‘creative‘ search engine. The idea is great, the search engine created a opening community for people in different areas. For example, the word “photography”, I found it quite useful as I can even learn something new from the subtrees of this word. And during the course, we were asked to create our own word and trying to find out the connections between the words. That was interesting when we found out the impossible connections between the words.

However, what I valued the most from this course was the opportunity for me to write a proposal. I’ve never done a proposal before so I really valued it and spent a lot of on it. The topic was interests and I will even produce it in the future.

HSS8121: Sound Art and Public Space 17-02-16

16th Feb we made solar sound modules using a hex-schmitt-inverter.

HSS8121: Flip Flop Circuit 17-02-09

On the 9th of March we made flip flop circuits. I first did this in the 70’s using plans taken from the Woolworth’s published Project Book 057 – Make Your Own Computer.

Book 159 – Experiments in Sound may also be useful in the context of #mediaarcheology.

HSS8121: proposal

Why I want to research the transformation from digital cameras into film like?
As a film user myself, I found it very fascinating and convenient to use films as I don't need to adjust the colour too much and each film has its unique colour as well.
However, many friends of mine are using digital cameras and they often ask me to change them into film's appearance. That is really a task for me as I can't make the digital images look exactly like the films. Then I started to research whether or how can I simulate the 35mm films appearance completely.

Is film dying?
I don't think so. Although in the 2010s, many film companies have announced that they will stop making films. Surprisingly, in 2017, Kodak announced that they will resume the production of a very famous film Ektachrome and other companies for example Italian company called Ferrania also decided to resume the production. According to Ilford’s sales figures, the recovery has been going on for some time, and in the past three years, sales have risen by more than 5% a year.
So people are still loving with the films and it should be a good research proposal for researching the films.

In what ways?
Algorithms, histograms, manual editing.
These are the 3 ways I figured out first. According to E. Reinhard, M. Adhikhmin, B. Gooch and P. Shirley(2001), they used simple statistical analysis to impose one image's colour r characteristics on another. They succeeded to achieve colour correction by choosing an appropriate source image and apply its characteristic to another image. They proposed an idea that firstly transform the colour space from the RGB to LMS, then convert the result into a new colour space lαβ, which is a transform of the LMS. Then the colour-correction method operates in the lαβ space as that will allow them to treat the colours in different channels separately. Finally transform the lαβ space back to the RGB space to display. Finally, applying the colour to the target image.
I was inspired by this and decided to use the histograms to test.

I believe that the digital cameras can't 100% simulate films' appearance as the imaging of films and electronic sensors are different. So they will perform different and film performs better in higntligh areas.

HHS8121 Seven Stories/Late Shows followup

Whew. It’s been quite a month. I’ve just about recovered from the barrage of coursework (although there are still a few little deadlines to mop up), enough to get my hands on all the photos and videos of the Seven Stories/Late Shows event, which went really well!
The pop-up performances worked better than I could have hoped for, really suited the venue and feel of the event. The culture-crawl premise of the Late Shows and the way the venue encourages you to wander around an explore really lent themselves to creating a sense of discovery as people got caught up in performances without necessarily planning to even see them.

I can’t take all the credit for the night, of course. Mike had a really interesting setup printing chapbooks in the studio, the performers’ talent was all their own, and credit for most of the documentation goes to Garry and Jade. But there is a certain amount of satisfaction in seeing that parts of the programme that I organised go off (mostly) without a hitch. I remember someone telling me that the best way to succeed in the arts is to team up with people more talented than yourself, and there’s definitely some truth there (-:

I had steeled myself for a lot of logistical difficulties, as well as the challenges of mediating between a venue and a lineup of potential performers with different needs, but everything went remarkably smoothly (although it certainly helped that I was mentally prepared). Didn’t stop me from being stressed out on the night. My own performance was… passable, in my own opinion. I could probably have pulled off a better set if my focus hadn’t been on coordinating everything else. But it was a lovely crowd, and a fun set nonetheless.

And now, a long overdue shout-out to the great local performers who came along, and went the extra mile, tailoring their sets to the themes of the exhibits and the venue. Follow the links below the check out their various pages and a sample of their work:

Doug Garry – old friend from the Edinburgh poetry scene, and one of my favourite spoken word performers. Also one of the Loud Poets.
Jayne Dent – amazingly talented solo singer, who also studies fine art here at Newcastle University.
Rowan McCabe – the Door-to-Door Poet. He does exactly what the name suggests, and he’s great at it.
Rosie Calvert & Will Finn – half (two quarters?) of acapella folk quartet the Teacups, and unfairly talented musicians in their own right.

That’s it from me for now. Expect some further screenwriting grumblings (its back to the drawing board again for me), followed by (hopefully) some new projects! In the meantime, here are some tasty video clips from the event:


HSS8121: Research Proposal – ‘Taste’ and Social Media

I was initially under the impression that the Research Proposal could be used to plan for the Creative Practice Project module, which I was very happy about. Obviously I see that these are different modules and should be kept separate, but I had my hopes up after reading the uni guidelines on Proposals:

‘If you are studying for a Master’s degree, you will almost certainly be required to write a dissertation proposal, which may be formally assessed as part of a research methods module.’

On top of this it just seemed logical to use this for the CPP, as most people will have decided on topics that they are very invested in which in turn could have produced some more passionate proposals/presentations. However, I do appreciate this as a ‘practice run’ for planning the research involved in CPP, and despite my initial annoyance, I came to quite enjoy writing this proposal.

As someone who spends a (worryingly) large amount of time discussing music taste online, I’m surprised I haven’t written on the topic before. Discovering the academic roots of something I’ve often pondered was fascinating and eye-opening. The main problem within this area was finding my own niche that would be suitable for research. As I didn’t have a specific idea in mind when starting, I decided put my faith in unearthing something during my research; which I did. The talk of ‘social network theory’ really gripped me, and an obvious link is the more commonly used context of ‘social network’, pertaining to social media websites. As I mentioned previously, I engage in discussion on music tastes very frequently online, and often this is with complete strangers. In a way I am already engaging in the research I proposed (subconsciously), and have been for a long time.

I can’t say whether I will be pursuing this topic with any intent in the near future (the Creative Practice Project kinda gets in the way of that). However, I think assessing the topic will make me more conscious about how I’m engaging with people online and how social ties and online communities effect my music taste (and maybe how I effect the taste of others).
