Programming with p5.js


The students were given the task of creating an image concept for their favourite song or artist. They created sketches and ideas analogue with pen and paper, the final realisation was done via computer and a browser-based software (p5.js). We went in search of the beauty in algorithms and discussed what effect computer-generated images have on us, what is perceived as aesthetic and why. Can beauty be captured in a general formula? Or is it an individual, personal sensation? In class, we also talked about whether a computer software can be creative on its own and how the digital world can influence our perception and senses.
