Grunnloven av 1814 som ordsky

WordClouds, eller ordsky på norsk, du har sikkert sett mange av dem. Ideen er å lage en visuell presentasjon av frekvensen av ordene i teksten. Dette er nyttig da det enkelt kan gi oss en oversikt over hvilke ord som brukes i teksten, og samtidig har den en klar visuell “dette er kult”-effekt. For å […]

Visuell programmering i Processing

I dag holdt jeg en liten innledning og workshop om visuell programmering hos Norsk Telemuseum på Kjelsås. Jeg ønsket å vise fram programmeringsmiljøet rundt Processing og var også innom forskjellige emner jeg mener er viktig i dagens IT-landskap. I hovedsak orienterte dette seg om data og interfaces, eller data og dingser som jeg kalte det. […]

Lær programmering med Processing: del 0

Nå er det lenge siden jeg har oppdatert bloggen med en post på norsk. Dette skyldes at jeg har arbeidet med en master på engelsk, og har ønsket å kun fokusere på et språk. Nå er oppgaven levert inn, og jeg kan endelig igjen bruke tid på å skrive uformelt og jovialt om ting der […]

Nonlinear narrative

If you are a frequent reader on this blog you have probably seen the earlier updates on the computer game I created together with Tom, Brendan, Gary and Elias last semester. If this is your first time here, or you just visited by accident earlier: welcome! You can find more information about the process clicking […]

New version of Non-linear narrative

As the second semester in my master program is moving towards the end I have some content I want to share with you all. Beside the digital marketplace course and a reading course I have been working on a digital media studio project, or as we call it, the DMSP. In this course sound designers, […]

No more testing inferno

If you have spent time trying out the endless opportunities contained in the art of programming you know how frustrating testing can be. Endless nights and days with an endless amount of  changing variables and recompiling. A missing semicolon, a misspelled word, well, the reasons to frustrations are many.  I know how it is, and […]

DMSP: A little Game

The Non-linear Narrative group, where I’m one of the members, handed in the first assignment in the Digital Media Studio Project on Friday. Together with Brendan, Tom, Gary and Elias I’m working on creating a story which is determined by a random computer model in combination with some pre-written elements. This approach poses some difficulties […]

Object Oriented Programming

This post is written as a blog post on the Digital Media Studio Project blog Non-Linear Narratives. In this post I want to discuss some aspect of object oriented programming, and some philosophy behind the non-linear computer program in its current version. The program is built in Processing, which utilizes the Java programming language, and […]

Electronic Workshop Weekend: Arduino

After an inspiring lecture on circuit bending and electronics held by Edinburgh based digital artist Yann Seznec last week I decided to try something new. In this lecture we looked at some interesting possibility in using electronics separately and in combination with computers. This seemed like an interesting domain to check out, so I ordered […]

Non-linear Narratives and Agents in Processing

The last weeks my Digital Media Studio Project group and I have been spinning around ideas on how to make a non-linear narrative based on a computer model using agents. This is an interesting way of taking advantage of Object Oriented Modelling, since the agents have attributes and methods relevant to humans. The model is […]
