After learning Arduino, I started another course for Processing on Lynda.com, it is called <Interactive Data Visualization with Processing with Barton Poulson>. Here are some notes I took and some practices I did:
Through today’s learning, I know the background of Processing comes from. And the history of data visualization and the concept of it. Before this course, I only know the code can control the figure but I don’t know how. After that I know different commands and how it comes, though these practices are just drawing some shapes, but it makes me have a clearer and more completed understanding of Processing, since this course is a little bit long and I also need time to learn and understand it so I can not finish it in one day so I will continue in the following days and also start to do some tests.

This one I don’t know why the first light was not shining and I’ve checked the code for many times:
This one is a little bit complex for me, so I was not able to make it:
This one is very interesting, it is use the Piezo element to sense my hand and it could make sound, so I recommended it to Shiyuan, think it might helpful:
After I finished this fundamental course, I had a deeper understanding of Arduino and have more interesting in it. Arduino is like a stage of physical elements, it can control them by writing commands. Just like a physical edition of processing.

After yesterday’s seminar, I was thinking how could I make the audience feel unclear to the images behind the barriers? Then I think about use some triggers to make the audiences could interact with those images. I am thinking use some sensors to react the audiences’ quality of hot or distance, the image will change depending on that. So I think I should learn how to use Auduino and Processing to achieve some interaction in my work. Then I searched for some courses on Lynda.com, because they have a fundamental course which could give me a clear concept of these two software. One is called: <up and run with Arduino>, here are some notes I took:

I read the article <The Art of Interaction> published on the e-journal <Digital Creativity>, here are some notes I took:
Through this article I did a basic study of interactive art. I learned the relationship between engagement, experience design and participants, and the “Pleasure Framework” by Costello. And I learned many theory behind interactive art, every art form has its own problem to face to, it makes me realize that only have an idea is not enough, I still need to research more about the art forms, in the audio-visual language of film art, in the space of installation art, in interactive art, I still need to know more.
Here are some keywords I summarised: HCI, participant experience, engagement, computer game, task analysis, error prevention, pleasure framework, behaviour.
Today Jonathan said think about use different art form to express my idea, how would the result going to be different. This is one of the reason why art forms need to be researched. Art can connect to everything and be influenced by everything. I should not think art is a single thing.
