check out my website for my art project “Pajaro Iterations” http://sc-fa.com

otherwise, I like #eurorack #synths and drawing #catsabstractsandspaceships. I'm in a cool band, haptic synapses. I like building things.

I feel like the people who like AI art are the same kind of people who would have thought a three-course meal in pill form was a super cool idea.

@rasterweb I used a locally running instance of stable diffusion to iterate on my own artwork, then I actually painted the iterations. Do you think my art is bad and I am bad for making it?

@stevecooley@mastodon.social avatar

@rasterweb I’m literally in an artist talk panel tonight about this, so I would love to hear your thoughts, as a warmup

stevecooley,
@stevecooley@mastodon.social avatar

@rasterweb for example, here is (a print of) my original painting below, and one of 24 iterations I painted above. #pajaroiterations

@rasterweb no I get it, and thanks for your responses and all of your thoughts. It might come down to effort. If producing the “art” takes almost no effort, AND you’re exclusively using unoriginal source material, that’s where signing your name to it gets really questionable for me.

@rasterweb @3dprinting wow Pete, I’ve been 3D printing a long time but I’ve never printed finished things this thin before. The fit on my tabs were pretty great, only a few needed a swipe with a round file. Seems legit, I think I’m going to do some printing this week. Thanks! In the photo I’m just doing a fit check and dress rehearsal with some painter’s tape on the edge of my desk. #blockprint #linocut #traditionalart #printing #3dprinting

learning some glass chromatic aberration shader magic, and holy wow it's really cool. This isn't too advanced, and I'm just following along with a tutorial, but dang...

Just got email from Monkeybrains saying that their office is moving. I hope they have lots of free parking at the new place so Rudy Rucker can stop getting into fist fights over it. https://missionlocal.org/2023/05/violence-breaks-out-parcel-36-mission-greenway-monkeybrains/

@jwz a bit of a trek for @rudytheelder but everyone needs a break from painting once in a while I guess?

No idea why, but A City on Mars is super discounted on Amazon right now: https://www.amazon.com/City-Mars-settle-thought-through/dp/1984881728

@ZachWeinersmith I’m no author like you, but I did publish a book through Ingram Spark. I find Amazon discounts it WILDLY, like 80% off, and it changes every day I look at it. There’s no way to control it, apparently?

This drawing took me a couple of weeks while I was waiting to pick up one of my kids, tackling a couple few lines of cats per session.

@paezha very nice! Looks like we are cat drawing twins separated at birth 🤩

I bought a large-format scanner, and the bundled software — which is called, no joking, MAC ACTION — has debugging left enabled in the most legendary way…

…it does a wall which writes debugging to any open Terminal window.

As @stevenf noted, “That is either an extremely novice programmer, or an extremely veteran one”

stevecooley,
@stevecooley@mastodon.social avatar

@cabel I'm doing an art project on large paper, and realized the predicament I put myself into by going with a format larger than I could scan easily. looked briefly into large format scanners, would love to hear more about how it went for you.

Synth Meetup was a lot of fun! Folks brought their Eurorack, vintage, odd, and hand-built synthesizers and were super into talking about their rigs and learning about what other people were playing. Great vibe, will definitely be back!

Edit: 2nd Thursday of every month, 7-9 pm, Idea Fab Labs at the old Wrigley Building.

@paul hey nice to meet you in person last night, just now realizing I follow you on mastodon:) second Thursday! Haha, sorry for the bad and overly confident advice. It’s definitely second Thursday every month.

When I find these in Little Free Libraries I take them so:

  1. No impressionable people are duped into believing garbage.
  2. I can give them to my daughter to laugh about.

Oh yeah! I just published a few of my older videos on my own peertube instance!

If you are in the maker/music/artist/synthesizer/diy realm and want to try peertube out as well please send me a DM on Mastodon with your e-mail address and a link to existing videos and I'll invite you to the instance.

Please be patient with me, I still need to figure stuff out and it might break or change a lot for now.

Site is https://www.makertube.net

@stevecooley@mastodon.social avatar

@polykit I have a couple hundred videos up on a peertube instance, and I was subscribed to the admin’s patreon, but the admin seems unavailable, and I can’t log in anymore because of a problem with 2FA. I post mostly eurorack videos. It would be nice to have a place to post new stuff, but I have to admit the idea of fracturing videos across different instances feels counterintuitive. Thanks for boosting @rasterweb…. we gotta figure out a game plan for this.
