Quadrant Reading

For this week's Creative Code challenge by @sableRalph : TextAdventure, I decided to have an animated Text Experience by using Hydra Code as a filter for the text as I am typing words in real time.

The title: Quadrant Reading refers to the sketch showcasing the same text but in four different viewpoints.

To have your own Text journey, you can use any text editor/word processor or even have a screen fill of text.


Hydra Code


src(s0).scale(()=> (time % 27)/5).kaleid([4,3,2,1,2,3,4].fit(0.5)).scrollX([0.5,0.3,-0.1,-0.2]).scrollY([0.3]).out(o0)

src(s0).colorama(()=> (time % 12 + 1)/14).pixelate([100,50,1000,700,2000,10000]).out(o1).

src(s0).rotate(0.5,0.3).kaleid([4,3,2,1,2,3,4].fit(0.5)).color(()=> (time % 10)/10, [0.1,0.2,0.3,0.4,0.4,0.3,0.2].smooth(0.5), ()=> (time % 20)/25).out(o2)

src(s0).rotate(()=> time % 180).scale(()=> (time % 27)/5).kaleid([4,3,2,1,2,3,4].fit(0.5)).colorama(()=> (time % 12 + 1)/22).repeat(()=> time % 4 + 0.2).out(o3)

speed = 0.4



The text seen in the Video

The Journey that makes it way past the window

The Journey that becomes known

The Journey that makes it way as it voyages Slow

A journey
A journey
A journey
A journey

What can the words now say

What will the birds chirp away?

Which way will the wind sway?

These are questions that may never have answers, these are questions that may never be told again?

Never be asked, probably?

What can be seen?
In this scene that is unique to the dream of the chance before hand
