Yay! The first half of my homework in a JAVA class
Since my first taste of code in undergrad and Processing, I didn't want to EVER take a programming class again. But I'm taking a great class that inspires me to sit for hours to learn and analyze code. After compiling in terminal and getting 1 error, then 5 errors, is an emotional roller coaster ride. Finally it worked, and it calculates math.
The second goal is to take (aspiration) and manipulate portraits like Annie Leibovitz. She is one of my favorite photographers. I really love the context of her photos, and she really seems to tell a story in every detail. I missed her exhibiton at the Brooklyn Museum this past January. I just picked up the July issue of Vanity Fair. There are 20 covers, but you can pick 1, kind of like Steven Levy's book The Perfect Thing: How the iPod Shuffles Commerce, Culture, and Coolness, except in this book there were 4 versions of this book with the chapters shuffled around. Anyway, I chose the cover with Warren Buffet, and Bill and Melinda Gates. U2's Bono was the special guest editor, and there is an interesting video on about this cover shoot on the Vanity Fair site. Anyway, if you watch this video, George Clooney is composited on the cover, but you woud've never guessed. Also, I really enjoyed watching this video about this cover.
