This essential book is a tool for unlocking the power of Processing. With this completely revised edition, Casey Reas and Ben Fry show readers how to use Processing for thinking, making, and doing. This remarkable software environment has opened the world of code to designers, architects, musicians, and animators. Providing a powerful alternative to proprietary software, Processing speaks to self-education and networked engagement. -- Ellen Lupton, Director of the graphic design MFA program at Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, and author of Thinking with Type and Type on Screen Processing has unlocked the potential of software as a creative medium by integrating a programming language and development environment and linking computation and the visual arts. This revised handbook provides expertly designed and invaluable tutorials that introduce the syntax and concepts of software and position it in the field of arts. Interviews with renowned artists give insight into the creation of their landmark software projects, illustrating how programming is applied in art. -- Christiane Paul, Adjunct Curator of New Media Arts, Whitney Museum of American Art In addition to what you can expect -- a great compendium explaining the software's features and applications -- the second edition of Processing comes with a well-curated series of interviews with artists and designers for whom software is key to their work. These exceptional insights into artistic practice contribute to the writing of history of software-based art and design and contextualize Processing in an adequate way. -- Joachim Sauter, University of the Arts Berlin, Founder and Creative Director of ART+COM
