Mushrooms can Dance! 金菇跳舞MV, a “processing” creative project by pinkwork

Heard that “processing” is a very powerful and free Open Source (programming) language for artists/designers. Its developers from MIT said it could be used to do almost everything (check yourself in its official site http://www.processing.org/ ), so made me spend a few days to experiment with it and created this project, must give a special thank to these little Enoki Mushrooms. It’s a real time Audio Frequency Equalizer, Music Waveform Display, etc. In a word, if you input live music, these little mushrooms would dance instantly

既然你們人類說,”processing“這套免費程式語言是專為藝術家/創作人/設計師而設的,我就拿它來玩幾天。當然還要多謝一班小金菇的幫忙。我這個小程式,其實是即時的Frequency Equalizer, waveform顯示…等等,簡單來說,只要輸入音樂,小金菇馬上便會跳起舞來。部份聰明的人類,有時也會發明些有用的東西來,大家可上processing的官方網址看看這套語言的功能 … 是外星生命體pinkwork™粉紅貓說的。

Alien captured on Video, Eason 陳奕迅 《The Key》專輯封面的外星人 / pinkwork video

human Prodip gave this Alien Figure to me a few years ago. Surprisingly I saw its image again recently, on cover of hk pop star Eason Chan ‘s latest album “The Key“. So I brought “it” out again and snapped a video of “it” using my phone yesterday . Prodip is a members of hk legendary hip hop group LMF cum designer. And this figure was designed by him and world renowned artist Michael Lau, based on or inspired by a real Alien abduction case (The Pascagoula Abduction Incident, 1973) …

這隻「外星人」figure是LMF阿庭幾年前送給我的,他說是參照外國一個真實的「人類被外星人綁架」個案而設計的。最近竟然又給我看見「牠」在陳奕迅最新專輯《The Key》的封面出現,便忽然興起,拿牠出來拍攝了這段無聊短片。也是那句,雖然大家都是外星生命體,但跟其實不太熟 … 喵 。

an “Art” Movie starring 2 Cats in a vintage store 粉紅貓古著店貓短片創作 (Olympus PEN)

I’m not a BIG fan of Olympus PEN, though many of my human friends are (especially those young girls). It’s the “Weekend Weekly” magazine editor told me she borrowed a Lite PEN (E-PL3) from Olympus and asked whether I was interested to take it for a 1-week trail. Why Not? Almost at the same time, one of my friends who runs a vintage Store in Central said, the lovely tiger-striped cat at his store just born 4 new babies. So I suddenly came across a funny topic for my column, that is “Using lite PEN to shot little baby kitten” !

I was not writing a camera review article, but I have to say here the “tilt screen” function of E-PL3 is very useful when I used it to shoot cats at very low angle (close to the ground). Its light weight and small size also made me be able to shoot photo or video with one hand. See, below are photos and two very short “art movies starring cats using this little camera. WOULD I buy a PEN? Sorry, don’t get the money … :(

我不是Olympus PEN的粉絲,雖然身邊很多人類朋友是,特別是女孩子。不過是上星期《新假期》的編輯跟我講,她剛向Olympus借了一部輕巧版PEN E-PL3,問我有否興趣借去玩一個星期。有新機玩當然無問題啦!同一時間,一個在中環開古著店的朋友說,他店內那隻非常可愛的虎紋貓生了小貓。於是我忽然想到以此作專欄題目,就是「『輕巧』PEN影BB貓」。

雖然不是寫試用報告,但真的要在這裡讚一讚此機的「可反80度角觀景屏幕」功能非常有用,尤其是以超低角度﹝貼地﹞拍貓時候。另外因為機身輕、細,我單手也可拿著相機拍攝相片及短片,另一隻手可用來打燈。看看,下面就是我用這部細小相機拍下的相片及甚有藝術味道的貓貓短片 … 會買這部機嗎?沒有多餘錢啊 … :cry:

* special thank to  BANG BANG 70′S Vintage Store 
 (1/F, 16A Aberdeen Street, Central, HK.)
 for providing the shooting location.
