Overview

Generative recipe.

  1. Take any kind of data, any boring piece of math trivia, a seemingly useless technique from an unrelated field.

Nothing is safe, nothing is sacrosanct.

Objective

How to start creating something new with code?

Anyone seeking to code their way to new forms

Five Things Audience Members Will Learn

  1. Points, lines, planes: growing complex geometry from simple rules
  2. Scalar and vector fields, powerful concepts obfuscated by math lingo
  3. Getting things backward: abusing GLSL shader tricks to create generative geometry
  4. Using open source data generatively
  5. Delving deeper into tools: getting the most out of Processing
