First of all, I have found a new objective for me in processing, read a photo’s RGB values and recreate it on the canvas. I think it could be real fun and it might have interesting results as well. Try to imitate the wave length is still a goal. Secondly, I read Norman’s Emotional [...]

Reading Software&Art by Casey Reas

September 22nd, 2005

Basically I really like the idea of interpreting what the artist has built and doing something towards over our interpretations, thus creating our own implementations, technically comments.

Before coming to ITP, I tought myself some basic electronics to get familiar with concepts and names and I must say they were really valuable to me [...]
