visit the p5 sketch here for your horoscope! if you’re interested in seeing the version with code attached, it’s here I’m not really a person who believes in horoscopes. I think they’re fun but my attitude has always been that it’s silly to believe that the movement of the planets can determine my future. Despite my skepticism … Continue reading ICM Final Project: Imperfect Sciences – Horoscopes determined by the weather.
Conceptually, using data from an API made a lot of sense to me. In practice, I’M RIPPING MY HAIR OUT, I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT’S HAPPENING, AND NOTHING WORKS!!!! I wanted to use this free dog image API to create a random dog picture generator by breed. Once I got the images working, I was going … Continue reading ICM WEEK 7: Aaaaaaaaaaargh!
This week it was a bit tough to dedicate as much time as I wanted to to ICM. ( I’ve been scrambling to get my p comp midterms together and my presentations for Apps ready.) I didn’t get to do as much as I’d like to with the sketch, assignment… but I feel like the concepts we … Continue reading ICM Week 6: HTML & CSS
For this week’s sketch, I wanted to make something a little halloween-y. I started with an idea to make some blinking bat eyes that would follow the mouse around, but after struggling a bit with the challenge in the quiz (and struggling to remember how I can , I decided to build on the intersecting-shapes … Continue reading ICM Week 5: Googly Eyes
I had a fairly easy time this week reorganizing my code from my last solo sketch of a birthday cake so I decided to challenge myself and reorganize my code for my half of last weeks sketch, this time building my slider from scratch. I’m running into so many hiccups! Right now I can’t seem … Continue reading ICM Week 4: Reorganizing Code
Marcela and I decided to work together for this weeks assignment, but since our schedules weren’t really aligned earlier in the week, we decided we’d settle on a color scheme and each do our own drawing that had some kind of slider control, and then get together over the weekend to connect them by placing … Continue reading ICM Week 3 – Documentation
For this week’s sketch assignment, we were asked to create a sketch with one element that changed with the mouse, one element that changed over time, and one element that changed each time you ran the code. Initially, I planned on updating last week’s self portrait so that my eyes followed the mouse, my hair … Continue reading ICM Week 2 – Sketch Documentation
Overall, I found this project fairly straight forward, but I will say I ran into a lot of trouble trying to estimate where on the canvas to place shapes! I think going forward I might start by placing a temporary grid down on the canvas that I later comment out… just to give myself a … Continue reading ICM Week 1 Documentation – Self Portrait
Before coming to ITP, I was working at an animation studio as a production supervisor. I got to use math and problem solving skills on a daily basis, but not really in a creative capacity. My job focused on keeping everyone else’s jobs running on schedule. The closest I came to doing anything “creative” with … Continue reading ICM Week 1 Reflection – How ICM Applies to my Interests
