instructions for the creation of computational art
The following tutorials were created to provide a simple access to the processing programming language. They were essential parts of teaching during the 2016 Digital Crafting class at HBK Braunschweig. Read more →
The following are a number of coding experiments using Processing in combination with the Minim Audio Library to create drawings from songs by mapping their average frequency and level in relation to time to the size of the canvas.
These tutorials provide very simple shape to fabrication instructions for quick prototyping from flat materials. They were developed during the Digital Crafting courses taught at the Braunschweig University of Art.
The Pazzles Inspiration Vue is a nice desktop cutting machine with a table size of 12″ x 12″ (or alternatively 12″ x 24″). Since the machine can apply quite a bit of pressure (up to 1.000g) it is capable of cutting materials up to a thickness of 2mm, which makes it an interesting option for (architectural) model making and prototyping from cardboard or thick paper. In addition to knife cutting the machine can be equipped with a pen and further interesting tools . Comparing the machine to other desktop cutters such as the Silhoutte Cameo or Silhouette Curio it is certainly more expensive and its design can be questioned but it also feels more sturdy and durable.
