13. Discussion: Formal Languages as a Framework for Art Production

We'll discuss Manuel Delanda's lecture and the readings for Wendy Chun and Claude Levi-Strauss. These Notes on Delanda's lecture may be useful.

Work on final project.

Meanwhile, here's some useful video capture code. It includes Hidetoshi Shimodaira's very cool Optical Flow code (from OpenProcessing) and a basic frame-differencing example that can be used to implement motion detection. I've modifed the optical flow applet a little so that i runs in Eclipse. In the code for the optical flow applet you'll also find an explanation of how to get the Processing video library to work in Eclipse. It's also explained in detail here.
