Using the Processing.org code line (code mediated gestural line) moved the images further away from the quality of verisimilitude often desired in a drawing. Verisimilitude is the degree to which an image looks like an object in the sense of the accuracy of the visual representation.
In terms of animation, I was looking at how during the process of animation our brains move the images back into the impression of visual accuracy – the bird is flying. In seeing the multiple frames I see hints of Plato’s shadows, searching for the perfect artefact of a crow among the many representations of the crow.
While hoping that in the process of repetition aspects of the “Ideal” crow are revealed; a Chinese whisper of distorting shadows going elsewhere needs to be borne in mind.
