SAIC Coding Club: Exploring Creative Chaos

Exploring Creative Chaos Workshop
Instructor: Garrett Laroy Johnson
Date: Wednesday, October 4th | Time: 3:30pm-5:00pm | Location: Flex Space (MacLean 400)


Unlock the world of limitless artistic possibilities through code in our “Exploring Creative Chaos” workshop using p5.js. Dive into the realm of generative art where randomness, Perlin noise, and chaotic oscillators come together to create mesmerizing and unpredictable visual experiences.

What to Expect:

In this workshop, you will embark on a journey into the exciting realm of generative coding, guided by our expert instructors. Here’s what you can look forward to:

  1. Introduction to p5.js: Whether you’re a coding novice or a seasoned developer, we’ll start from the basics, ensuring everyone is on the same page. Learn how to set up your coding environment and harness the power of p5.js, a JavaScript library tailored for creative coding.
  2. The Magic of Randomness: Delve into the world of randomness and see how it can be harnessed to create unique and unexpected visuals. Understand how to control and manipulate random processes to your advantage.
  3. Perlin Noise Wizardry: Discover the beauty of Perlin noise, a fundamental tool for creating organic, flowing patterns. Learn how to implement Perlin noise to generate landscapes, textures, and other mesmerizing effects.
  4. Chaotic Oscillations: Unleash the power of chaotic oscillators, a fascinating concept from chaos theory, to add controlled chaos to your creations. Create dynamic, ever-changing patterns and explore the chaotic side of generative art.
  5. Hands-on Coding: This workshop is all about hands-on learning. You’ll have the opportunity to code along with the instructor, experiment with different parameters, and see your creations come to life in real-time.
  6. Inspiration and Creativity: The refrain has all three aspects, it makes them simultaneous or mixes them: sometimes, sometimes, sometimes. Sometimes chaos is an immense black hole in which one endeavors to fix a fragile point as a center.

Join us in “Exploring Creative Chaos” and unleash your inner artist through generative coding. Get ready to create stunning, one-of-a-kind visuals that will captivate and inspire. Don’t miss this opportunity to embark on a creative coding adventure with p5.js!
