Code {Code}

i'll try to keep this short


want generalize writing coding as inscription emphasize that the world we
know it is already inscribed encoded decoded lifeworld isn't analogic
and/or mute it's discrete presencing because deal with symbols in order
communicate we're sending signs or tokens back forth very rarely physical
objects of our desire

one way thinking about terms filtering usual model information transmitter
through receiver stuff all sorts middle channel implies there a form
coherency and if not comprehension at least mutual orientation cognitive
domains between sender i'd argue occurs which always present fuzzy
possessing political economy its own think pribram's retinal knowledge
example neural processing retina before signals are sent from eye brain
active passive inscribing itself non existent nothing particulate matter
an ontology derived organisms apparatus

once start end here creative splits hand becomes wryting that's spelled y
state material transformation transmission reception other malleable spew
interpreted moment freedom also into unbounded ruleless 'creative' drawn
organism's interior collocation languages kludges protocols equally
impulse external restraints economic etc

goals may be transformed process note work i'm doing virtual environments
laboratory i've been exploring visual configurations inscriptions spaces
avatars interact uncanny ways

simultaneously protocol driven working within time based register static
dynamic processes blur another can temporally code tableau moving
performers during slow scan much same manner characters appearing both
ends panormaic photograph move them depth create interactive diorama
viewer enters meanders reconstructing original sequence events combine
restructured motion capture behaviors using mannequins circulating among
elements tourists ruins several interlocking layers interpretation midst
aid 3 dimensional laser scanning abject they were projections themselves
far potential 4 reading orinterpreting seeing witnessing object interiors
result 5 manifold cultural possibilities

exploration enormous kind pure escapism dialog narrative arousal creation
annihilation ultimately happens no gets hurt so leads direction just
mention briefly any medium then talk whatever emphasizing new media
approach rather than electronic literature e misquote physicist david
finkelstein might consider programming fucking with/in universe abstracted
ontologies masturbation fantasy anywhere anywhen however have common
neither presents 'presence' on hands meander rules although differring
obeisance their

core absolute anything how useful pedagogically? answer believe texts
intentional cohering filtered different forms practice programmer but
programmers sure outsider appears interstices liminal program framework
inputs outputs interfaces hardware traditional sense laden substance look
phenomenological horizons only programs general where her subroutine?

do final thing placing too emphasis specificity directions vel remains
indeterminate close th something gooey gui humans explore refuses
curtailment abjures communication

addendum unlike especially wvu errors commotion repertoire extensions even
doesn't run still aporia modified gesture essential difference wild goal
oriented software place add above case apologies west virginia university
we've idea filters extend ideas particular creativity lead unexpected
consequences some relatively old equipment gary manes has rewritten
interface sensors bvh file out include possibility modifying appearance
subsequent when files fed poser second life filter more exaggerate
movement diminish substituting tan sin d modeling by playing around
someone familiar ins outs mocap representations comes course gimp graphics
extended able apply directly text perl designed jim reith florian cramer
find exciting participants/viewers since opens up need taken granted
everything modifiable imagine number tools students artists coming alan
