In this class I am exploring with the automatization of video to create poetic sequences that reminds/emulate dreams. The project for this class both an opportunity to make me think about the “editing” and narrative language of dreams and a challenge to create significant sequences.
As a bot, I though the program, one creating the sequences, could tweet them at three different times during the night. Random time between 2:30 and 6am.
Steps of the process
- Image Collection:
From Instagram videos, friends and people/institutions I follow.
2. Image Clasification and tagging
Folders with topics:
Creating json file && tagging the images
3. The program / algorithm
I just play with 2 variables to creating the function:
From the first video selected it started creating a sequence with a selection where the previous video must have a same topic with the previous ones and so on.
A lot can be explore and create though different code.
Here some results:
