Processing.js and Animated Ellipses on Artsnova
Screen shot: Processing Oscillating Ellipses Painting
and following the steps as I had done with the Android library to complete the process.
The first sketch I've done is Processing Oscillating Ellipses Animated Painting – which is quite a mouth full but does accurately describe what the sketch is all about. The program itself is rather straight forward and incorporates animation and interactivity. The picture I've used to illustrate this post is a screen capture from the program in action. The sketch has been tested and verified to work in the Windows versions of both Firefox 21 and Internet Explorer 9.
Right now I have no idea where this is going to lead. While my use here of Processing.js will be for purely aesthetic and artistic purposes, I see more significant value in Processing.js' ability to create interactive data visualizations. As we enter the age of "big data" and as our need to interpret information becomes increasingly important, the capacity of tools like Processing.js to allow us to visually explore that data is far more important to society than its artistic and gaming capabilities.
