This work above is an example of what can be created through the use of Processing. My knowledge being based in HTML/CSS the potential to create something above through a piece of code is quite over whelming; being able to sit down a use a pencil to create a piece of art similar to the above would have been expressed as ‘common sense’ to a person like me, but being able to use ‘code’ to write a work of art has opened my views to this.processing_workshop_20141010Processing Spiral

Above is the result of the code…

Here I’m at a point where I am experimenting with the potential of what could come out of coding, hopefully eventually leading me to the point where I become inspired by something I would like to create.

Here I’m find the repeat of the spiral too simple; something so basic which hasn’t taken me long to create doesn’t satisfy what I want to do.
