[Beginner] Create generative art with Processing

  • Mar 22, 2014 · 2:00 PM

Processing is a set of tools, including a programming language, designed to facilitate the use of software within the visual arts, and to promote visual representations within technology. Processing is focused on making digital creation simple and fun, with an emphasis on visuals and interactions. This makes it particularly fitted for makers, designers and visual artists.

Whether you plan to create an artistic installation, an original Android App or simply to learn how to code, Processing is one of the best resources available. It is used by tens of thousands of students, artists/designers, researchers, and hobbyists worldwide.

After discovering the Processing environment, we will discover what generative art is and get our hands dirty. While we will have material to guide you as for every OTS workshop, we will try our best to let you free to explore personal direction within this frame. This workshop is not only about learning technical stuff, but also about expressing your creativity through technology and sharing your realizations.

During this workshop, you will learn the basics of programming, how to use Processing and its development environment (IDE) to create visual effects that people can interact with. By the end of the workshop, we hope to make you autonomous with Processing so you can start your own projects.

This workshop will be located at iMal,  centre for digital cultures. Thanks a lot to the iMal team for making this workshop possible!

Requirement:

1) Bring your laptop (Windows, Mac or Linux, no problem)

2) Optional: Download and set up Processing on your machine.

Note: If you don’t have a laptop, warn us in advance so we can bring one for you.

    the windows were locked, I then forced it to switch of and after few minutes I switch it on and asked it to start by cleaning the concerned problems... After the automatic clean up, the processing software was deleted.

      Not so weird, typical windows solution. It probably 'forgot' the registry entries after you've shut it down inproperly.

      Reinstall it, or start using linux (be aware, your amount of swearing will augment highly, but diminishes over the years)

      And I think you meant frozen, locked is when you -lock- it so you have to enter your password

      What do you mean by locked? What did you do to clean it up? You might want to just download it back from the processing website.
