Project 1: Actions

action

interaction
transaction
reaction

networks are measured by the actions they enable

the first project takes aim at a singular action through a series of distinct exercises aimed at providing the skillset to construct a simple interactive mechanic using the processing programming language.

to frame the resulting product and the iterative exercises you are asked to identify. first a network from some aspect of our world, then particular point(s) of action (inter, trans, or re-active) within that network.   Use simple procedural drawing and/or parametric modulation of graphic elements with interactive functionality and/or data driven dynamics to demonstrate the qualities of the action(s) you have selected.
