Ladders and Silos: Data Dit Dot Dit

Let’s repeat. “Any pixelated data would work.” – Erica Bird, The Experimental Nonlinear Physics Group, Dept. of Physics, University of Toronto. Dit. dot. dit.

Solve it. Repeat from * – Sl1, Sl1P, SKP – ladders (errors to fix) – these are terms to shape and make something from sticks and string. A process that is a life with chapters that includes aviation, animals, creating. Decode. Reverse engineer.

Visual pattern or words? Idea. Put it down, type it up. Translate, test it. Is it a repeatable process? Pixelated is the same as charted; graph paper will work. Make a map for others to repeat the process. Start. Follow. Goal. Human ability (and determination), always is a variable. Be sure language is as precise and clear as possible.

Now. How to animate those pixels for story, match the concept. Time goes away; creating is that wonderful. (Not when things break and don’t work.) Here is the new, all of what can be done with computing and coding and technology. And here are traditional ways, knowledge and makers. Knowledge gleaned knit with passion, applied to new mediums. Remember what it is like not to know. You’ve done this before – finding a way through distractions and side paths. Silos can be breached. Create a ladder. Visual storyteller, walk between worlds. Find a way. Get there.
