Pinned toot

my name is paloma, and i am an a/v artist in brooklyn, ny. i work with video feedback and synthesis and analog video signals, and also software and code. on the sound side, i like to explore audio synthesis and processing techniques, radio signals, and field recordings.

i post little experiments and tests, sometimes events or bigger things im working on, sometimes just what's on my mind or cool things i find. and i love to see what others are up to on here too!

trying out a mediawiki for the scanlines.xyz community. i tried using mediawiki a while back for personal research but it wasn't quite the right fit. but for a collaborative documentation project i think it might work pretty well. i just installed it last night and it went pretty smoothly, need to configure some more things, and then try migrating some content over from our "wiki" posts on the discourse forum.

it can also be written: New Delusion
or the most obvious counterpart: Nude Illusion.

starting a joke band with my roommates called Nude Deleuzian

- i haven’t been on the internet much, i’ve just been doing things irl and existing. i still check my feed sometimes, it just feels like there isn’t a lot to say that lends itself to easily digestible "statuses." but i’m here, and still enjoying seeing what others are up to on here :)

here are some updates.
- my new housemates and i are moved into our new house. we are still curbing the chaos a little and finishing setting up studio zones, but our house is excellent
- we have a variety of saws for woodworking now and i built myself a simple, low bedframe platform (in my previous apartment, i had a loft)
- i found an old e-reader for $2 at a thrift store, and was able to get it working and loaded up with epubs. i just finished reading my first book on it yesterday

rainy sunday … continued with the typewriting stuff. i liked the idea from my first try with the textile pattern, so i continued a bit. I made some basic elements first and then merged them into a larger image on a grid. It’s more like a flying carpet now or wavy glitch something. I also used other glyphs that give it a more dense, textile like appearance (/, %, §). I didn’t want to in the first place, but things got very complicated VERY fast and i had to use a text-editor for composition and as template for typing line by line… :idle:

feeling a bit worn out. i have had two extra demanding weeks of job work interspersed with a weekend of moving heavy objects, insufficient sleep, and apartments completely filled with piles of unpacked belongings. looking forward to getting back to the point where i have the energy to do the things i really want to, instead of just the bare minimum of what i need to.

we have spent the past three days packing and moving. now everything is in boxes and piles in our new house. my whole body is sore from loading and unloading but i didn't seem to hurt myself at all (which is excellent as i was recovering from a back injury since february)

i was able to sleep no problem ! i guess it was decaf.

in other news, i was parsing JSON in my dream.

i purchased a coffee after not drinking coffee for a few years. i asked for a decaf but i'm not sure if they heard me so it's a bit of a Russian roulette

camped out in a field in the town where i went to grad school. i went there to meet up with three dear friends i haven't seen in a year...our conversations picked back up as though no time had passed.

apartment search update: we finally put down a deposit for an apartment and should be able to move in next week ! i am very excited because it is a really nice space and we'll even have a basement and garage. here is a photo of me and my new roommates shortly after we made the decision. our new house will be dubbed: MUTANTPLEX

here is what i look like today. it was really nice out earlier and i was walking around and finding nice nooks to read my book in. now i'm back home, and i spent a bit of time trying to delve more into GLSL, but i'm feeling a bit blocked. ah well, i will keep dipping my toes in until things start clicking more.
