Compared to working alone, a shared medialab has the huge advantage of having other people around who know something about code, and can cast a spare pair of eyes across the work you have been doing.
After a heavy day’s wrangling yesterday, Ben Dalton kindly looked over my code and has been helping me make it more streamlined and functional. Some small changes fixed a few sequencing problems, and some speedily implemented reorganisations finally made it function as intended. I’m now in the happy situation of having something actually working that can be shown to people at the weekend. It’s slow, and it’s not enormously efficient, but it has far less redundancy than it did before Ben had a look, and it goes some way to answering the questions and addressing the problems that I set out on day one.
