#introduction New here. I requested an invite because I want to try to spend a little more time doing generative art and gamedev in the next few months/years.
Presently, I am teaching an introductory Data Science course, doing a normal job, and parenting a 3 year old which has profoundly limited the time I have to do fun things with computers.
@dredmorbius Enclosure. The world would be completely different in every way if we still had a concept of communal property. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enclosure?wprov=sfla1
I'm not sure how this related to spectacle, but on the subject of spectacle and games, I find almost ALL the games that I've seen popping up recently fall into the premium mediocre spectrum where they're explicitly created to be easy to share on twitter.
@vincent on se doute que l’IA fait des miracles mais applique des recettes un peu trop communes !
Dans mon cas, cette application corrigera immédiatement la symétrie de mes yeux (première erreur !) et atténuera la déformation de mon nez alors qu’il est vrillé depuis des décennies (je jouais talonneur au rugby).
Donc une jolie remise en forme du monde qui ne sera jamais conforme de facto.
I derive almost no pleasure from either making lists or scratching items off of lists. What lists make me feel is a deep sense of the hopelessness of trying to organize life into any coherent structure.
When I do make todo lists all I am ever struck by is their absurdity in even a few days time and the absence of any strong long term correlation with reality of what I do with my time.
Am I alone in this perception? It often feels that I am.
I am a dad using what limited time there is my schedule to think about (roughly in this order): data science, physics, game design and development, and generative art.
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
