Brief Interlude to Learn Processing and some other things

First Processing Art

First art made with Processing - a graphic and interactive coding language I am learning


I have been away again for a while. The main reason is that I am learning some new software and a new graphic/interactive programming language, Processing, in order to better facilitate this new media blog. It is becoming frustrating that I build my interactive animations in commercial software which has a tendency to out of existence every few years (and gets replaced by something new that renders everything I have built obsolete and unviewable). So, I decided to learn to code them myself, preventing obsolescence. This image links to my first program. Obviously this will take me a while to learn, so I will keep posting Flash and gif animations in the meantime; but I will also post examples of my progress learning Processing.
