“Make something static”

For our first assignment in Intro to Computational Media, Daniel asked us to play around with shape primitives in Processing and “make something static”.

I started experimenting with shapes and colors and came up with the sun-like sketch below. Note – this isn’t quite static – you can click on the sketch to generate a new, semi-randomized sun. Clicking more to the right will generate more sun rays, and clicking more towards the bottom will alter the background color slightly.


Afterwards I made this goofy hand/recursion thing that really had nothing to do with the assignment (inspired by this work). Move the mouse around to play with scale etc.

Here’s a screenshot of another version:
