About the Book
In a 2 weeks workshop, the students learned programming from scratch, using ‘processing’. They were given scripts to start from (chapter 02 - spine distortion, generic script). Modifying these, or developing their own programs, the students worked on a ‘morphogenetic interference’. Starting point is an ordered grid of regular elements that is interfered by an input, i.e. the mouse, another element or self organised ‘agents’. The students worked in groups, developing their own concepts and views on interference, potential inputs and graphical representations on the topic. The results become highly complex, unpredictable. Interesting effects that weren’t foreseen - emergent effects - were analysed and taken into account.
