PROCESSING MYCELIUM

2017

processing + coding


Exploring the parallels between the digital and the natural networks by creating a visualization of mycelium through coding using Processing. However unexpectedly, it became an exploration of what language and coding could be.Building on the original intent and how we use the language in home décor/design magazine when describing nature, I took the descriptive adjectives used and created a visual representation of mycelium growing into these words. In reflection, there were layers of understanding, which included; coding of man-made artifacts, shared resources, and social networks, visual representation vs.reality, and intuitive and logic in language.
