It is rare to find a book that adeptly addresses the creative, conceptual, and technical aspects of programming. For those who work and teach in the space between the technical and the creative, this book will be a valued resource. -- Joel Swanson, Director Technology, Arts & Media Program University of Colorado, Boulder, USA
This is an amazing work capable of addressing the most important concepts of algorithmic and process oriented design/art. No other text I have read so comprehensively guides the reader through the visual output and the internal programming motivations for creating such beautiful data-driven work. -- Wayne Madsen, Assistant Professor of New Media Art and Technology, Indiana University, Kokomo, USA
