Works created from Processing hacking workshop

Posted on February 6, 2011 in Art, Code, Hardware, Teaching

Last week I asked my Interactive and Generative Art students to choose an example sketch from the dozens of sketches that come bundled with Processing, then hack the code until they produced something new and interesting. Overall, the sketches the students came up with were really unique and cool, and a couple sketches even including some user interaction and generative art techniques.

Believe it or not, these works were creating over the course of two class periods with about one and a half week’s worth of knowledge about Processing.

Most of the students are freshmen and sophomores, with a couple students even being completely new to programming, having enrolled just this semester in Computer Science!

Each of the following screenshots are actually links to the author’s blog post about their sketch, so you can learn how it was made and by whom.
