From Processing To Painting I’d been working on using Processing to create these grid patterns using circles of varying diameters for a while now, but moving from the digital world to the physical world is something I first started experimenting with last fall when I was attempting to win a laser cutter. While I love laser cut wood, I wanted to try applying the idea to something different, and it’s been a long time since I put paint on canvas, so… More info on this series of painting (titled annular) can be found on the project page, but the basic process involves running a Processing sketch, using the output to cut stencils, and then painting using the stencils. The Processing sketch outputs a PDF file, which is a vector file easily opened in Inkscape and adjusted to the correct size.
40 Essential Tools and Resources to Visualize Data One of the most frequent questions I get is, "What software do you use to visualize data?" A lot of people are excited to play with their data, but don't know how to go about doing it or even start. Here are the tools I use or have used and resources that I own or found helpful for data visualization â€“ starting with organizing the data, to graphs and charts, and lastly, animation and interaction. Organizing the Data by sleepy sparrow Bert Balcaen I designed and fabricated a lamp using molding and resin casting. I’m sharing my experiences here: this is a step by step documentation of whole process. Along the way I’ll point out what I did well and where I made a mistake.
Creating digital portraits with algorithms Mike Brondbjerg is creative director at Brondbjerg Design and Development. He explains how he uses Processing.js, algorithmic trickery and some SVG to create amazing digital portraits of American Presidents. Who are you and what do you do?
Showcases on Datavisualization Interactively Explore the YOLO Flip 12 Feb 2014 Showcases Animation, Interactive, Process, Sports In preparation of the Winter Olympic Games 2014 in Sochi, we helped the Swiss newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung publish a long-form article about Iouri Podladtchikov, a professional snowboarder and – since yesterday – freshly baked Olympic gold medalist. To help readers better understand the sport, we created a series of illustrations and an interactive animation.
Sine circle test animation — Blog — Ben Crowder As I’ve been tinkering around with graphics coding, I wanted to figure out how to map a sine wave onto a circle. Here’s how it went down. (Disclaimer: this is all unoptimized code that is almost certainly not the best way to do this. Also, I’m a beginner, so yes, this is very basic stuff.) First off, I started a new Processing sketch and drew a circle:
