…the wood amongst the trees…..
By deconstructing images into random regular elements it enables us to see the wood amongst the trees, the hidden details we may have missed, the texture of the paint, the stories within stories, the sub plots.
Theo is using a ds106 toy I made a while back. I don’t think I’d really though much about the use of cubomaina images.
Cubomania Gif! makes still jpgs too. I just changed it a little to keep the still images fullsized but resizing gifs to a more sensible 400 pixels wide.
The images in Theo’s post are a lot more illustrative of his ideas that the one here.

Although I am really enjoying exploring the indieweb, this point about reliance is always on my mind. I am relying on so many technologies to be able to do this and we can alway fall back on the evil mega-corporations.
It might be because I am in a micro.blog bubble at the moment but it does seem that the indieweb stuff is getting slicker and easier to use. When I switched to sempress with a wing and a prayer it felt like an act of faith. It is beginning to feel like a great choice.
