E stumbled upon thee idea ov Computerized Sigils in late 1989, while drawing
Op-Art patterns on my old Commodore 64. There was a specific process that E
performed on a seed image, that would always result in a distinct (yet similar)
result. It seemed to me that this was very much like thee way in which AOS made
his sigils. E performed 2 rituals using this tech-nique, both ov which have
since coum to fruition... :-)
E refined this core idea even further when E got an Amiga. Its sophiticated
grafix enabled me to manipulate images in ways that E never imagined with thee
A favorite method ov myne is to take an image that represents thee idea that
E wish to make a sigil ov, perhaps mapped over another image, or coum text, and
turn that image into a brush. Then shrink thee brush, to perhaps 1/16th ov
original size... then enlarge back to original size. This will erase all detail
and eou will end up with a good stylized image.
Collage is another good method. E use this method in conjuction with thee
other method for a more direct visual stimuli. By combining stylized images with
"normal" images, eou can program both eour waking and un-waking minds.
E recently got another tool to use, E was informed ov thee ability ov
GNU Emacs to do cut-ups:
M-x dissociated-press [M is thee Emacs slang for thee "ESC" key...]
Is how one does cutups in emacs...Supposedly giving it a positive
argument cuts-up by letter. Negative argument means cut-up by
word... It starts and places the results in the buffer Dissociations
and asks you if you want more rearrangement...
Much more info in the INFO tree under Amusements Node...
E did this to a copy ov last months mailer... here is thee output:
E am very excited by thee potental ov this new tool.
more to follow... l-ov-e: 129
