The prompt for Genuary 2023 Day 6 is

StealLikeAnArtist

Prompt is based on a book: austinkleon.com/steal

For this prompt, I decided to code with a Hydra sketch that I "Stole" from a previous sketch made in 2019 and reworked. Also for this prompt, I decided to use Seis8s made by Luis.

The " Steals" in this particular piece are

  • Remixing code previously used in two ways ( Audio + Visual and Added an Oil Painting Filter on Top)

  • Stealing a Hand to make the art over by using a green screen

    • Also on the site of the book mentioned prior, one of the rules is "Use your Hands"
  • When we think of theft, hands are one of the first objects that come to mind

    • And we assume that the bulgar has gloves on

Poem

For the hands reach
To where they can squeeze
For the fingers, linger
To the places, where they teach
To the spaces, where there are breezes
That caresses 
With its presence
For the fingers, linger
For where the hands can reach

Visual Code

//Hydra Code

osc(10, 0.9, 300)
.color(0.9, 0.7, 0.8)
.diff(
  osc(45, 0.3, 100)
  .color(()=> (time % 20)/20 + 0.1, 1.9, 2.9)
  .rotate(0.175)
  .pixelate(1100)
  .kaleid([47,13,4,2,1].smooth())
)
.scrollX([2,-1,2,-1,2,-1,3])
.luma(0.6)
.repeatX(()=> time % 11 + 1)
.repeatY(() => 12 - (time % 10))
.modulateRotate(
  osc(1, -0.9, 320)
)
.scale(()=> time % 12 + 3)
.out()

speed = 0.0925
