So Wednesday morning was my first ICM class. And while I had originally considered trying to audit it, I’m really glad I didn’t. There’s always more to learn, more to learn from my fellow students, and so much to learn about creative coding.
Our first assignment is to blog about how computation relates to our lives, and to create a self portrait using p5.js. I’d picked up the Getting Started with p5.js book when I knew I was coming to ITP, which helped a lot with figuring things out. So far, the hardest thing has been figuring out the coordinates that I want to start my shapes at. It’s a work in progress at the moment, but I’m feeling pretty good about it.
