This assigment was about using markov chains to create new output. Turns out that markov chains can be used to even modify pixels...such and alluring idea! Except not, specially if you spent the week previous to the class trying to follow the class excercises and not doing any actual homework.
So eventhough I looked into pillow and option of turning pixel readings into csv I couldn´t figure out a way of actually performing anything with pixel. Yet I still wanted to work with color. As per usual all the code and files used for this assigment are found in my repo.
A very simple process was applied: I first created a source text that comprised the three problems listed in the Wikipedia article for Color theory and an excerpt on an essay about color blidness , then I used the markov module and remixed the text with problemmix.py into 4 lines compositions which, and this is where I had to step away from coding, I edited in Illustrator to create the two inputs you will see ahead.
The reason why I picked that input and edited the texts into their final form the way I did is because I wanted to explore exactly the problems of color (including the fact that I currently can't play with it through code). I used RGB, which are additive colors: meaning light colors not meant for print, hence their dull appearance. I also made two compositions, one that iterated through this combination of Red Green Blue, and another that according to what I read will not be completly readable to people with color blidness. This both concepts are incredibly interesting for me, the color and treatment of our text can transform it to the point of making it unreadable.
