Hello everyone, I'm Matúš Solčány, i currently study masters information design in the Netherlands. In the past time i do generative art and organize clojure+quil workshops in the uni.
I've been lurking about in the public section of Merveilles for a while now and i like the general ethos of using code for other than commercial and utilitarian purposes. Below is my latest generative work, a poster for the Quil workshop. Thanks for having me :)
The 70 images are 250kb heavy on average at 1400x900. The landing page thumbnails are 100kb on average at 1024x601 and there's 12 of them. I'm keeping them at relatively high resolution for mobile devices.
Most of the video size comes from bad compression of .ogg, where mp4 or webm has ~5mb .ogg needs ~20mb to maintain the quality.
the 50kbs of css comes mostly from the Tachyons library, i think i could eventually get it down to ~10kb or less
The next step is to finish developing a wiki and some initial content for it
Thanks everyone for the tips! i checked them out and i like the Pattern Recognition!

Day 3 seemed complicated at first, but so far it's my simplest solution:
It took me a while to figure out regex, but here's my day 2:
AoC is fun! I was considering using clojure, but I'm more comfortable with js.
When I do coding challenges and try to tame a less familiar language while tackling the challenges themselves I burn out quickly. This time i want to focus on the coding challenges only.
I brute forced my way through day 1, I'll think about a more elegant solution later: https://github.com/Solcany/adventofcode2020/blob/master/1/index.js
Dungeon synth is my new favorite ambient music
Artworks of the recent Swans albums and Michael Gira's drawings have a big impact on my art.
The raw drawing material in their cover art often gets space in the composition to express itself.
It's now a ritual for me to dedicate some of this 'raw' space in each artwork that i make

Merveilles is a community project aimed at the establishment of new ways of speaking, seeing and organizing information — A culture that seeks augmentation through the arts of engineering and design. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
