This project is done by Joern Roeder and Jonathan Pirnay and deals with the accessibility of the internet. It uses processing and Facebook to take all the picture off someone’s page to print a wallpaper large enough for the entire room. This shows how processing can be used in taking a social network to create collage of one’s life.
This is an example of how processing can use 2d objects to simulate a 3d image. Instead of the circles protruding further into the distance, the image is shifting the circles to one side while scaling that side of the circle where it has been shifted. It is amazing what you can do just using 2d object, meanwhile still creating a good depth perception.
Looking on the web, I noticed many examples of artwork that were created by processing. I began to realize the huge desire to use processing as an art tool rather than a device for creating a report based on input. The interesting thing about using processing as an art tool, by implementing a randomization into the code, the art will come out similar but never be the same.
The Radius Music is an autonomous revolving machine that reads a distance value in real time between itself and other objects in the space. If there are no objects to alter the conditions of the space, the device will read the distance of the boundaries of the space. This device rotates slowly while scanning the room, and takes the radial distance and outputs it as a sonic frequency and a corresponding visual score. The sonic frequencies are tones and pitches that relates to the distance between the device and the secondary object. The corresponding visual score is a potentially infinite composition based on the idea of the circle. Along with Processing, it was built using Arduino and PrueData. This device was created by David Young, aka Henderson, who also conducted many other experiments using processing. The link below will bring you to his website.
Here is physical interface to virtually paint like Pollock.
This is a short explanation of how it woks:
The actual color was replaced by light.
The brush is made from wood. Inside it: Accelerometer, Arduino-mini, EasyRadio RF-Module, RGB-LEDs.
The accelerometer data is transmitted to the computer over serial(over air).
The computer sends back the color information for the RGB-LEDs.
The color is changed by pointing the brush into the paint buckets.
x = x + random(-15,15);
y = y + random(-15,15);
x = mouseX;
y = mouseY;
