Intro to Generative Art & Processing
About the workshop.
Processing is a versatile tool frequently used by artists to create screen- and projection-based images and videos capable of responding to live data input (sensors, online information, etcetera). In addition, Processing integrates very well with the Arduino microcontroller, allowing artists’ computer programs to interact with the physical world.
This workshop is designed for those with little or no programming experience.
“Processing is an open source programming language and environment for people who want to create images, animations, and interactions. Through a strong online community of individual and institutional users, Processing has evolved into a tool for generating finished professional artwork. Today, there are tens of thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning, prototyping, and production.”
