Computing for Creative Practices
For this project we were assigned to create an abstract clock using the functions hour(), minute(), second(), and millis(). Based off a cute snack I was having at the time, I made the leaves of the strawberry show the hour using the 12 hour system, the bands of blue and purple showing the seconds leading up to a minute where the bands start in the other direction, and the minutes shown by the clock hand in the corner.
For this project, I incorporated an picture of me posted online on IMGUR that through the mouse placement would slowly come in and form a pixelated picture of me composed of colored circles that adopted the color value of the spot they appeared on.
Based off the old nursery rhyme "London Bridge is falling down," I decided to alter source code of the Big Square Mesh springs so the bridge can be dragged whichever way you want. When you get tired of old London Bridge, you can make it disappear by pressing any of the keys. There's also a nice little message at the end.
For my final project to finish out this course, I worked with a partner (Ramya Chinta) to make a generative landscape with cars, clouds, and a bridge that passes by. The user controls the UFO by moving the mouse and the objective is to abduct all the cars by clicking above them until there are none left.
