We’ve been focussing a great deal of attention lately on Hoaxtead mobsters like Angela Power-Disney and Kristie Sue Costa, who have been vying for control of the hoax for the past several months. But we’d hate to have anyone think we were neglecting some of the long-time Hampstead SRA hoax stalwarts, such as Sabine McNeill.
Since her last arrest, Sabine has been relatively subdued, so we thought we’d peek in and see what she’s up to.
It seems her latest project has to do with her much-vaunted “Smart Knowledge Engine”, a tool which allows for “detailed investigation with a kind of ‘software lens’ or ‘image filter’”. Here’s Sabine’s description:Just in case that made about as much sense to you as it did to us, here’s a video description:
So…if we understand correctly, Sabine is finding various objects, assigning each greyscale pixel an automated colour, in order to create interesting three-dimensional images.
Congratulations, Sabine! You’ve just “invented” the parametric bitmap!
We thought we’d take a go at it, just for laughs.
Here’s how we visualised some simple black and white typescript using our own in-house “Smartish Knowledge Machine” and a package of crayons:
Not bad for beginners, we think.
Also, Sabine: 2002 is calling, and they want their code back: On the plus side, of course, while Sabine’s “Smart Knowledge Engine” may not give established programs such as Rhino or Grasshopper a run for their money, this fun new project is keeping her occupied and (more or less) out of the Hoaxtead arena. And we suppose everyone needs a hobby.
