Generative art

Creative Computing using the Programming Language Processing 2.2.1

I’ve been experimenting with the programming language called Processing.  It is early days yet and the discussion of what is programming and what is art is very interesting. Say, if, given, instructions by an artist on how to draw something, say you follow those instructions, well then is that piece of art that is created yours or the artist who gave the instructions??  I think a more interesting question is “If, as an artist, you program a piece of code (computer instructions), the computer carries out your instructions – does the art generated belong to you or the computer?” – see where I’m going with this? It is fascinating.

 

Anyway, here is my first generated piece of art. I used a sketch (program) created in the processing language. Hopefully this will be the first of many and will improve as I go along 🙂
