PART ONE | the task roulette:
SIT OUT FRONT WITH A FRISBEE AND ASK PASSERSBY TO PLAY. GO TO AN EASTER EGG HUNT.
- BUY A NEW BOOK THAT YOU NORMALLY WOULDN’T READ.
PART TWO | how I solved it:
+ Here the actual page grid was used as such, with 40 rows and 28 columns of 1 by 1 unit cells.
+ Each cell equals to either a word or space within the text on the selected page.
+ instead of buying a book, I just randomly took a book from the bookshelf.
+ Using Chrome random number generator a random page was selected to work with.
+ The text on the page was transformed into a visual, using the following rule: words with 1,2 or 3 letters were marked as a single black cell. words with 4,5 or 6 letters with 2 black cells. words with 7, 8 or 9 letters were marked with 3 black cells. And words with 10 or more letters with 4 black cells. The space between words was marked with a blank/white cell.
+ STARTING with upper left cell, and working across to the right, the drawing image is created by painting the cells corresponding to the actual text.
