A Processing function to get random color palettes from the ColourLovers API.

Three new video tutorials that explain how to generate 3D shapes in Processing and render them using Blender:

Gesture Recognition for Humanoid Robots.

Aravinth showed the code for Anaisa’s “Confusion” sculpture.


Confusion, an interactive scultpure built around a plasma ball.

The Heart of the city: a light sculpture that you can sit in and that reacts to your heartbeat. The sculpture is covered in a luminous material called LED neon flex.

Anaisa showed a piece that she did at the SchoolOfMa last summer.

Rachel introduced the new program of SchoolOfMa called “Making sense of empathy”. It will happen in Belgrade right after the Resonate festival (

“School of Machines, Making & Make-Believe is an organisation dedicated to the imaginative and non-sensical exploration of art and technology.”

Tempest for Eliza. “Tempest for Eliza is a Program that uses your computer monitor
to send out AM radio signals. You can then hear computer generated music in your radio.”

SuperCollider visualization.

Max presented is Creative Coding Framework written in Java. “It’s like Processing, but cooler”. The code/values can be annotated and a webserver takes the values and creates a visual interface. The graphical part is a Opengl wrapper. This framework can als

This essay by Bret Victor should be required reading for every creative coder (especially those of us who teach):

Fragmentarium - IDE for exploring pixel based graphics on the GPU, created with fractals and generative systems in mind. I read about it at Syntopia, a blog with pretty fractals and complicated 3D math.

The Clock, by Gislain Benoit.

The objects in Penny Webb’s Separate Togetherness collection are designed to interact with each other, helping people anywhere in the world stay in touch without necessarily having to communicate directly.
