This RECord is designed to be a brainstorm in preparation for a series of Manifesto pages dedicated to the diverse multi-media techniques and practices carried out by hitRECorders. Pleas...
I've always loved the shape of waveforms. So I downloaded one of Joe's videos, grabbed the audio where he said "Are we recording?" and captured the waveform, then edited it in Photoshop. This is more a conceptual thing than a finished piece!
I took fabulouslyfreckled's colour scheme of my visual sound image and just spread the text out. The idea is to have the text appear below the part of the waveform with the actual word shapes.
a series of papercuttings based on pondergoblin's trapeze video. i love her poses on the trapeze, and thought that releasing them from gravity might serve the concept of snow falling upward.
here's what i imagine when i read blodnasir's tiny story:
"If I read our story backwards, it’s about how I un-broke your heart, and then we were happy until one day you forgot about me forever.
I love happy endings."
was going to add the text of the story in the illustration, but no placement or typeface seemed quite right. anyone have a better eye for that?
Immediately upon seeing wirrow's gorgeous “mountain tops are lifting,” I couldn't get the idea of doing it in stained glass out of my mind (I also thought it could be cool as a quilt... anyone want to take that one on?). Anyways, I most desperately wanted it hanging in my window. And now it does:) And I only bled a very little bit in the process (glass, as one might expect, is rather sharp (as are the edges of the copper foil tape, which was more of a surprize)).
Making of video coming soon! is here: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/494472
This is my first time doing true video editing... so applogies? I'm hoping I managed to communicate some of the magic that is making stained glass. There's stop motion! I would most definitely welcome any ideas to make it more interesting/remixes. Hope you enjoy!
an idea (for visualising videotroph's thinkRECord twisted) ... (ETA and it's NO LONGER set up cause I want to get back to spinning, but I can always do it again if there are suggestions for a slightly different set-up)
I love the idea of having a physical little story somewhere out in the real world, so I took fleurdelys's Catch it. illustration and turned it into something tangible.
*I resourced the tiny stories from Vedder and Sinnamin because I actually saw their stories before the illustration.*
Hello Sharpie, my old friend...
I've discovered the perfect combination - HannahLou's line drawings and old pillowcases. The two go together so well.
I've been embroidering a pillow with chopstick's cute ilustration in my spare time and after a little over two months work I've finally finished it.
Ok, so when I said it wouldn't take me that long to write up the scarf pattern... I underestimated a lot of things, including how much work charting patterns is. Sorry! But I did it, and here it is! My first properly charted pattern! And I would love, love, love to see you RECord any scarves you knit from it!
It's charted in three charts (increase, body and decrease) and a legend, which I've combined into two image RECords for ease of printing. The second one can be found here: http://beta.hitrecord.org/records/663223 or in the results tab.
This pattern is modular, so you can knit as many repeats as you would like, and you can also make it as many circles wide as you like – just keep repeating rows 27-38 and adding the 12 additional stitches in each row of the repeat section of the increase chart each time you do that, until you are satisfied with the width. Then you can move on to the body chart (where you also repeat the repeat section as many times as needed, ie once more for each circle added to the width). The decrease chart is a little more complicated to explain – knit rows i-vi (repeating the repeat section as many times as required) and then go back to the body chart and knit rows 45-50 (using as many repeats of the repeat chart as required) and then return to the decrease chart and repeat. Each time you will do one less repeat section until you have two circles left and then you can continue on to row vii-xxxi of the decrease chart.
You can use whatever yarn strikes your fancy – anywhere from super bulky to lace weight, just make sure to use the needles your yarn suggests (with smaller needles giving you a denser, less open fabric). I used 200 grams of an aran weight on size 8 needles for the one I knit. The size of your scarf and the size of the circles will, of course, be dependent on what yarn weight and needle size you choose.
You begin by casting on three stitches, and then work the scarf on the diagonal, starting at one corner and ending at the opposite, much like a parallelogram. Start with chart 1, continue to chart 2 and finish with chart 3. Then break the yarn and pass it through the last stitch, pulling tight. Weave in the ends, then give the scarf a good blocking. I embroidered the download and add button on mine afterwards with a small amount of white yarn, using chain stitching and then filling in the holes.
I think that's all you'd need for instructions, but if you have any questions/problems, do let me know and I'll do my best to help. There are lots of great instructional videos and tutorials on the web for knitting that would be a good place to go to as well. And if you find any mistakes, let me know so I can fix them!
Instructions and the first pattern page (charts 1 and 2) can be found here: http://beta.hitrecord.org/records/663230 and in the resources tab.
So this happened.
1 month in the making (I worked on it on and off).
3 black sharpies.
This was the most challenging post-it project to date because of all the detail, but I think it turned out pretty damn awesome.
