Playing with Mud: Discovering Human + Computer Interaction

Processing, Programming Language and Environment developed by Ben Fry and Casey Reas helped create Mud Tub

The past couple of weeks have been a great introduction into Processing. Processing is the programming language developed by Ben Fry and Casey Reas. Being the complete novice, it has been quite the experience. What’s even more exciting than learning a new language is seeing designers, artists, engineers, architects, educators, and so many different creative minds (some with very little to no programming experience – I fall into this category) learn the language and create interactive works that will astonish you. Going through the Processing exhibition page, I had to share my latest discovery – Mud Tub! Please click on the image above to see how this artist and his team utilize open source programming for this phenomenal experiment in human and computer interaction
