COURSE: ART 448: Coding for Graphic Design

MEDIUM: Data Illustration

DESCRIPTION:
This composition was created using Processing, an open-source programming language created by Ben Fry and Casey Reas. I used a series of random functions to create this composition. This piece had around 30 lines of code.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT:
Since this piece was created using random functions, it generated something new each time the code was run. I really enjoyed this composition because it reminded me of the illustrations and color palette used in the children’s book The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. The composition has a very playful feeling as a result of the colors and the whimsical shapes.
