In working towards the complete version for the final project, I have created a patcher which takes a single webcam and analyzes the footage and looks for the colors red, green and blue. If it sees these colors, it will output a specific tone per color in order to harmonize. This concept I believe can be transferred to Dinoflagellates in order to create a hybrid Bio-System. I've created a video that can best show off the color analysis of the program. I've also assembled a box which can house the webcam and phone showing the video. The box lid can be easily removed and can react with lab colors for presentation.
The article describes mechanization as the transferal of human actions to machine.
Gives me the thought of car assembly lines.
Interaction and blending perhaps is the best way to describe it.
(Will ask for clarification on meaning in class)
Man to Machine:
Mechanical brains, transference of mind to machine
(paraphrase: A picture might be worth a thousand words, but there needs to be that someone to create that picture)
Machine to man
Currently unknown to today's society
Machines could one day observe a person and diagnose the situation
It will have the ability to act on its own with knowledge
Man to man
words, gestures, emotions, body language
generated complex thoughts and understanding of situations
The Idea that I'm working with is that I want to connect sound to the light emitted by the Dinos. Each of the webcams monitor a different container full of them. max will interperet each footage differently and assign each one to a different note if the color blue is seen. The tough thing about this is that dinos have a circadian rhythm and follow day night cycles. I could make this a closed environment and put in an aquarium light on a 24 hour timer in order to make them light up during the day.
"Man is always aiming to achieve some goal and he is always looking for new goals"
The cybernetic psychology of pleasure. (Or as I like to think of it, psychology of goal fulfillment)
1. Organizational construction 2. writing 3. Performing 4. Appreciating
The situation for this:
a. Must be controllable b. Must have varying interpretations c. Must guide d. Must possibly respond
D is the most complicated. Can be seen as an internalized conversation
Uses Synaesthestia, the combination of the visual and audio in a synced format.

The Musicolour works are actually very difficult for me to imagine. Everything seems so mechanical and I cant picture it in a performance setting.
I am going to need some clarification on what exactly the "Colloquy of Mobiles" in class.
