Code for 'Process 18 (Software 3)', by Casey Reas, USA, 2010

Labels and date

Casey Reas initiated the popular open source programming language, Processing, with Ben Fry in 2001. Reas is interested in the concept of emergence, where a simple set of rules leads to a complex system. The works in his 'Process' series all start with a written text describing the interactions between elements, forms and behaviours. The text is then translated into machine-readable code. The resulting software, such as Process 18 (shown here) can be seen as an interpretation of the original written instructions. []
