From custom geometry to adding textures to 2D and 3D shapes, Amnon Owed shows you practical examples of a number of crucial building blocks for 2D/3D Processing projects.
Making an argument for software as a dense medium for visual arts. After doing work for 10 years, in this presentation Casey Reas reflect on the work and tries to put this argument for coding in a wider context.
Matthew Plummer-Fernandez’s ongoing exploration of digital fabrication and recent commission to produce a new work, titled Venus of Google, for Design Exquis. CAN was fortunate enough to engage him in a freewheeling conversation about the undertaking.
Tutorial on how to output algorithmically created graphical ornaments or representations of data in Processing to multiple page documents, ready for offset print with process (CMYK) and spot colors.
Meanders is a generative system driven by the interaction of growing agents. The agents are governed by conditions, allowed to wonder and their paths converted to object, outputted as OBJ and rendered.
Speculative Sea Level Explorer is an application made using Processing that explores the possible effects flooding should the sea levels change as a result of global warming.
Last December 3 artists were working at The University of Salford, as part of the ScreenLab artist in residence initiative by Elliot Woods and Kit Turner. The initiative aims to explore modes of perception and interaction under the theme ‘Future of Broadcast’. The invited artists, Kyle McDonald (USA), Joanie Lemercier (France) and Joel Gethin Lewis (UK) spent over 2 weeks developing open source tools and methods […]
Created by Lucien Langton at ECAL, FireWriter is a graphic butane/propane torch printer built with Processing & Arduino. The hardware consists of a hacked inkjet printer controlled with an Arduino Uno, a Dremel torch loaded with a butane/propane mix that burns up to a temperature of 1200C, and an added calibration module built with an optical sensor.
Created by Manuela Donoso and Luisa Pereira, The Harmonic Series is a collection of mechanical devices , software, sculptures and prints that explore the relationship between musical and visual harmony. Inspired by the nineteenth century mathematician Jules Lissajous who invented a device to visualize sound vibrations using two tuning forks and a beam of light […]
Currently on show at the Bitforms gallery in NYC are the three new mirror pieces by Daniel Rozin. The exhibition titled Angles features “Angles Mirror”, a piece that builds a picture based on relative lightness and darkness. It explores a system of linear rotation that indicates the direction of an object’s contour. A wall-mounted sculpture, the Angles Mirror […]
Created by Scott van Haastrecht for the Creative Technology course “Innovation Lab” at university, The Image Toaster will search the internet for images related to the days date and will toast it on your bread. Just in case you tend to forget those important dates The Image Toaster will remind you using a 6×6 pixel image. […]
Created by Hannes Jung during the two week project “Talk to me – Form follows mood” at the KISD (Köln Interntional School of Design), .fluid is a concept study of an interacting, changing surface. Installation uses non-newtonian fluid, an arduino board, a speaker and processing to allow surface to change from liquid to solid, from plain to three-dimensional symmetric patterns. […]
