After six months of not writing any graphics programs, last week I dove back into the process by writing a Processing program that combined particles, a variety of force fields, and masking.

The program began simply (which is the best way to begin any programming project) and acquired added flexibility and complexity as more functionality was added. The particle image shown above is a sample made before the program was completed.

A few of the things I've been doing over the last six months that have kept me away from graphics programming are:

  • implemented a responsive web design version of my Artsnova Digital Art Gallery web site.
  • created a number of digital paintings - none of which are available online yet.
  • launching a photography web site in December - Jim Plaxco Photography
  • managing the Enterprise in Space Orbiter Design Contest - Enterprise in Space Project.
  • preparing and presenting two talks (one solo and one collaborative) at the Gateway to Space Conference in St. Louis.

For 2015 I hope to be able to spend more time writing generative and algorithmic art programs.
