Playful Procedures: 
Coded Compositions Workshop


Two versions of this workshop ran during my residency at the Firestation, the fifth version of their Artist-in-Residence program. The first version was during the Over-Karak sessions that run every week in a different artist’s studio. The participants were invited to collage multi-colored origami paper to explore different abstract compositions. They then gave me their compositions to live-code them into generative gifs.

The second iteration of the workshop was open to the public, and was two hours longer, so the participants were able to translate their collaged compositions into code using a prepared template of a sketch in p5.js, so they were able to edit the numebrs within the existing code blocks, and iterate through different combinations to achieve their recreations.
