Assignment Week 2

Assignment (due next class)
1) Create a cool animation using the trig concepts you learned today. Conceptually, you can (a) reflect on the passage of time across space or (b) further develop your interactive narrative from last week’s assignment.
2) Write a few sentences reflecting on your project. What themes were you dealing with? How did you execute it? What might you do differently next time?

Quick Note on Posting


Morgan let me know that yall don’t have the ability to create a new category, so I made one for everyone. Your name should now appear in the Category box. Sorry for the confusion!

Week 1 Assignment (due 9/4)

Super excited to have all of you in my class and looking forward to seeing all your great work!

Here is your first assignment. Based on the feedback from the initial meme assignment, I decided to change it. Please see #5 below and let me know if there are any questions.

1) Install both Processing and Arduino on your personal machine if you haven’t already. Place order for Arduino starter kit from Sparkfun or Adafruit.
2) Post the project you presented on the class blog.
3) Write a short paragraph explaining what you hope to get out of this class based on today’s discussion.
4) Post documentation of your favorite work by other designers/artists that inspire you.
5) For this assignment, I want you to create an interactive story using the programming concepts below. You will be assessed based on how well you use them (I am looking for understanding, not complexity) and your concept. Be prepared to present them next class. You must include all of the following:

  • Arrays + for loops (you must access your array using a for loop)
  • PImage + PFont
  • A function you created
  • Motion (acceleration and velocity)
  • **Extra points for collision detection
  • Interactivity (whether mousePressed, keyPressed, etc)

Assignment 0 – Due first class

We are going to ease into the semester by spending the first class getting to know each other, discussing the goals of the class and what you want to get out of it, and reviewing the different programming languages we will be studying.

Here is your assignment for the first class:
Be prepared to present a little bit about yourself and one of your code projects from Bootcamp (5 minutes). It does not have to be your final. You should talk about what you learned from this project, what challenges you faced while creating it, and what you would do differently next time. If you would like, you may also include a non-code related project that you feel best represents you.

You can present in any format you like – off your website, Keynote, Powerpoint, etc. This is very informal.
