I’m working on a command line emulator for Processing. . . This is somewhat of a useless experiment, and there’s a lot to be done to make it into a fully functional library. . . but at some point, i’ll finish it. . .
Went to see Mark Napier’s show, Empire, at bitforms gallery yesterday. Mark is teaching a new class at ITP next semester using LWJGL (“lightweight java game library”) as means for exploring OpenGL as an artistic medium. Should be a great extension of the programming courses taught with processing at ITP. . .
I was interested in Mark’s use of a “springy” architectural form as a paintbrush and started messing around with a “pendulum-y” paintbrush. . .
Anyway, the show is great, go check it out!
So, I’m working on a project at ITP that involves viewer comments on video that are tied to specific points of time in the video. It needs a new title, something less, i dunno, boring. . .
I hope to post some videos and use this system at this site at some point. . . I hope a lot of things, though. . .
Here is a video taken at Siggraph of some of my work presented there in 2004. . . . it’s old, sigh, someday i’ll have some time to show something new. . .
I’ve been getting some e-mails asking about the ol’ ShakespeareMonkey@Home project inquiring about sample source code, etc. My Nature of Code course covers a brief introduction to genetic algorithms and includes a sample applet that evolves the phrase “To be or not to be.”
This was made with Processing — I’ve been toying with the idea of generating a series of “how-to-program-with-processing” videos and vlogging them from here, we’ll see if I can find the time. . .
Ok, so I’ve discovered the magic of wordpress and redone my site. . . who knows if it’s any better than before. But here it is. . . enjoy!
