PostArt Poets Logo ETG Poem

Here’s a new posting of an Encoded Twitter Graphic, the protocol of which you may peruse here. This particular graphic is a tiled ETG, which is mentioned here.┬áThe tweets are as follows: `CGA`09×12`ExrD11`{444444444444444444444444444444444444444C4444444CF F7CC444CFFFFFF44CFCCC7F44CFC444744CF7C44C44CFFFF7F44CF7C7FF `CGA`09×12`ExrD12`{4444444444CC4444444FF44444447F44444447F444C444CF7 C4FC4C7FFFFFC4F7FCFFC44F7F47F444F7FCFC444F7FFF444477FF44444 `CGA`09×12`ExrD21`{44CFC77C744CF7FFFF44CFCFCC7444CCFC444444CF7444444 4FFFF4444CF77F44444FC4C4444CFC444444CFC4444444FC44444444444 `CGA`09×12`ExrD22`{CCF744444F7CC44444FFF44444447F44444447F444444C7F4 44444FFF444444C77444444444444444444444444444444444444444444 And encode the logo of the PostArt Poets in the CGA color space.

Another Way to Get More ETG Pixels

Continuing on the idea of stuffing the Twitter pipeline with pixels, maybe I should just not worry so much about compression and figure out a way to divide images up and let the coding enable people to reconstitute them. Thus, I have prepared a tiled Twitter graphic, expanding from a simple 9 x 12 pixel

Further CGA ETG Compression

I’ve been trying to find a way to compress images even more, so I could expand the size of the color tweets available. Basically, since Twitter uses only the usable characters of ASCII text, and it can be hard to type higher-bit ASCII on some keyboards, I’ve pretty much exhausted the palette of encoding options

A New ETG (Encoded Twitter Graphic) Self-Portrait

I dusted off the old ETC encoding protocol today for a project I’m doing for a show entry, creating a self-portrait to send through social media. I used the 6-bit compression scheme I used for old Teddy Roosevelt’s 2-bit gray image for an image of myself. Because I did a couple tweaks on the protocol

Animated Twitter Graphic (.atg?)

Another stab at using Twitter as a data pipe, this time I’ve decided to send an animated graphic as CGA-encoded color frames. This will be similar to an animated .gif file, and I’ve prepared one of those to show what the final image will look like, but this will be completely text-encoded for Twitter. I’ve

Let’s Get UltraMeta: Tweeting a Compressed QR

My success in compressing 1-bit black and white images (as Holly Golightly) through the Twitter data pipe got me thinking about 1-bit images in general use, and it’s not surprising that I thought of QR codes. QR codes are nothing but 1-bit bitmaps that can be interpreted by your smartphone through image analysis. I still

And Finally, A 2-Bit Grayscale Image of Teddy Roosevelt with 6 Bits of Compression

For my final trick this evening, I decided to see what would happen if I applied some pixel-level compression a la Audrey Hepburn to a grayscale image. Of course, I’m working with the bare-bones of grayscale, having only four levels of value: white, light gray, dark gray and black. That allows me to clump the
