So, Basically I opened processing and went to certain examples which I thought would be a bit more challenging. I found an Image Explode function which was interesting. It is interactive and allows the user to scroll their mouse over the image to pixelate and explode it. Shown below is the original code and result:
Next: I proceeded to adjust some values including figuring out how to change and load the image and resize the screen in order for the new image to fit:
Pictured below are the results:
Above:This is the image by itself- with a re-sized viewing window.
Below: This is the image pixelated after the mouse is moved from left to right.
A Second example included a simple math function where I adjust many values including background color, line stroke, line length, and the location of the segment to create a very different looking function with the same behavior.See below:
Included is the code and highlighted are the changes.
I would like to acknowledge the authors of the original code, and mention that this was used only for testing purposes.
I will continue to experiment with processing, and hopefully it will lead to a rewarding final project for networked technologies.
Until then Cya,
