I’m developing my conceptual and technical skills by experimenting with new software. I’m interested in using Processing
to expand my creative exploration of dreams and memory. What is Processing? It is an open source programing language created by artists and designers that can program images, animation, and interactions. I’m interested in it’s ability to pull from RSS feeds to create an interactive piece. Here are some examples of work done in Processing.
- Expand my exploration of dream interpretation and research with Processing.
- Use an interactive medium to analyze common dream themes, stories and research found on the internet.
- Enhance my technical skills for future artistic experimentations.
I’m still learning Processing and hope to get a strong grasp of it’s capabilities in the next few weeks, but I hope to create a piece that pull information from RSS feeds or blogs about common themes people are writing about in their dreams. I’d also like the program to pull up new articles, research and writings on the subject. I’m envisioning that data to be pulled into a cloud of moving text that describes words pulled from these sources.
This is my initial idea with random dream related words would be pulled from RSS feeds and placed in a swarm of circling text.
This was another play off the first idea. Ideally, each word could be selected and the rest of the sentence would be displayed.
