I was having trouble logging into the blog the first week of school, so I missed the introductory post. I’m Liz, short for Elizabeth. I’m from New Jersey and it’s my second year in Parsons. Currently majoring in CD and hoping to learn more about coding by the end of the year because it’s something my brain never adapted to before.
For this project I just experimented. I’m still struggling with codes, so this was a good opportunity for me to try out different things. My main goal was to make something interactive with a hypnotic sense.
I took a painting I did 5years ago and tried to re-create it in a different form using the codes to pixelate. I tried to emphasize the vertical strokes of my image yet make it still recognizable.
It took me awhile to figure out why nothing moves when I changed the shape to quad, but I realized (I think) it’s because of the x’s and y’s. So i just left the shapes I made and added the movement of rectangle. I also made the shapes act like lights as I pass them when I move around the mouse.
I still can’t figure out how to change colors when I add new shapes and how to make noFill shapes to move around.
I couldn’t upload on the blog so this is hw from 2 weeks ago.
