Processing Processing

For the past six weeks, I’ve been enrolled in one of the most challenging classes of my life. In said class, I’ve been learning how to use Processing, a computer programming language in which I’m desperately trying to become a native speaker. However, the rigorous parameters has made it difficult to learn the local slang. (Wow sorry, getting a little carried away with the foreign language comparison.) Some days, when I’m up at 3 in the morning unable to understand why my program isn’t running, it feels like I’m deaf and trying to learn to speak Italian. Every once in a while though, the clouds part and the sun shines down on my keyboard and I make something that I think is pretty nifty. This piece was designed using a function I created that makes the various shapes in the composition move around the screen at random.
