Playful Procedures 2.0: 
Plotted Coded Compositions Workshop


The participants were invited to collage origami paper to explore different abstract compositions. Then 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. They then exported their code as an SVG file, and it was plotted on an AxiDraw. The workshop was part of the xLab “Hello World! Exploring Compuational Potential” exhibition at Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts in Qatar in December 2021.
