Learning to Code with Variable Fields
Parametric software is, unfortunately, eclipsing what would otherwise be interesting discourse on the role for math and computation in a non-linear design process. In an effort to put aside the notion of the form-generating apparatus I developed this simple coding framework using Processing. Students programmed animate drawings, which, in their completed state, maintain a variability with reference to a changeable parameter.
