Thoughtographic Experiments: Tiling Results

To investigate an image pixel by pixel, mm by mm or cm by cm … the already mentionned image magick trick may help. These are screenshots of my gthumb imageviewer containing 197 .tiff (f)tiles of one thoughtographic image I made earlier on
Results of further investigations into the darkness of this paper negative – original size 8 x5 cm – are hopefully soon to be published.






ImageMagick – Mogrify


Thanks to a nerve robbing research of Mr. Pickledfeet:

To handle multiple images easily in one go, changing and finally saving all of them to your preferred format, use the magick “mogrify trick”:


mogrify -density 72 -quality 85 -resize x1000 -format jpg *.tif

Note: -format jpg [defines output] *.tif [defines input]

The Haribo Computer – Software


Look: Glossy cheeseburger

Smell: Sweet-light creamy

Consistency: Smooth burger bun layers, wrapped around fruity cucumber and tomato jelly, centered with soft filling of creamy sugar cheese. But to define their individual consistencies  I will have to take the burger apart into its single pieces and enjoy them one after the other. Tomorrow!

Taste: Extremely sweet milky

Aftertaste: So far: quite filling.

The Haribo Computer – Software

Subtitle Editor 0.10.1


Look: Round and red

Smell: Subtle blue berry

Consistency: After some tricky initial problems to get hold of the bumpy, juicy and chewy sweets, (make sure that you download the necessary related equipment called: the good, the bad and the ugly – gstream plugins), they finally melt slowly on the tongue and it’s impossible to swallow the delicious and endless tasty jelly.

Taste: Decent sweet and sour, – maybe mplayer tastes smoother with it than gstreamer.

Aftertaste: As I had them all at once, I am still chewing, but: english subtitles will be soon available for: Welt am Draht (World on a wire) by R.W. Fassbinder

Look: First impression, judged under the influence of nearly 10 years lazy photoshopping: curly, messy and a bit clumsy but happy, colourful and quite friendly

Smell: Intensively fruity, flowery

After the first stubborn chewyness, (biting off the tentacles first) it gets smoother and I slowly find my way through the unknown labirynth between surface and inside. The slippery ingredients are difficult to make out as they are very different to my former environment, but eventually I can feel some surprisingly new and pleasant textures. After chewing and curling it round and round I leave it melting on the tongue a bit longer than necessary, – the little loose and scattered bits join slowly together into a nearly smooth and comprehensive jelly.

Very sweet surface, the deeper I chew the more sour it gets.

Some bits might stick in my teeth for quite a while, but hopefully that will only safe the juicy taste a bit longer.
