Processing 1.0 ALPHA

its a data visualizing art project. Couldn't figure out what was cool about it on a quick surf, but Casey Reas is involved so I'm bookmarking it for reference. For the now though it just seems like an unimpressive data visualization program, but I assume there is more.

Abe, I met Casey Reas and Ben Fry at Ars Electronica where proce55ing was both on display and discussed in the symposium. What's cool about it is that it not only is a data representation, but an emergence representation as well. Each trace is generated by a "data bug" with its own rules about tracing and interaction. The images that emerged were not only aesthetically pleasing, some displayed nature-like characteristics. Interestingly, the aesthetics can be appreciated at multiple levels - as the final art object, as the process of the traces and as the control images that track the individual "bugs."

nice, new there had to me more substance to it.

Processing is a complete programming environment. It's built for the audience of artists and designers and is a tool for learning and sketching in code. Many people are making information visualization with it, but the project is much more than that.
