Playing with p5

Last week, I enrolled in a two-day p5.js workshop at the Gray Area Foundation. The workshop was taught by Chelley Sherman, a new media artist and interaction designer out of LA. She encouraged us to experiment with what we learned as soon as possible and push ourselves to build things that we're interested in.

 Objects & Loops

Objects & Loops

I started playing with p5 last year and thought a workshop would give me a little shove once I was exposed to the possibilities of what it can do. The bonus was that I'd get to meet a few people who are into creative coding too.

This small project was super simple. I started by building an object - the bubble. It has properties - an ellipse that moves. I then made 20 of them, looped through them and displayed them on the canvas. I used a conditional to generate a continuous flow of bubbles. Maybe I should try to make them look more like bubbles and less like circles on a flat background.
