I made a couple of different things for the first ICM assignment in Processing. One Alphalpha Squares, a grid-like series of boxes with varying shades of stroke and fill. I played with color and alpha, and worked on super-imposing with transparency. There is no interaction. The second piece I worked on is an extension of something I made this summer– a self-portrait. I used mouseX and mouseY extensively to get the entire picture as a whole to follow the movement of the mouse. Clicking the mouse or the keyboard produce motions in the mouth that simulate talking. I couldn’t figure out how to make the eye balls move upon clicking the mouse. How does one make an object move? Subtract the previous position while adding the new position? I’m sure we’ll get to this..
I have been having trouble uploading the second picture (new self-portrait) to the ITP server using Fugu. I had help uploading the squares, but didn’t have time to write down the step-by-step details. It gives me this error message: “Warning: OpenSHH’s sftp cannot yet download directories. Would you like to download week01.1 to /Users/arturbo/Public/ICM2009 with SCP instead?” Try again later , I will.
UPDATE: Here’s the 2nd one, uploaded nicely: Wow! Self-Portrait (click mouse and any key)
what happened was this: I changed over to Fetch from Fugu (better interface), and deleted all the applet files, and then re-transferred them. Then Matt Parker pointed out that my folder said “week01.1″ and that Fugu probably doesn’t recognize “.” Changed it to “_” and it worked.
