Mit seinen unkonventionellen Thesen zum Umgang mit Computern im Bereich der Grafik hat der amerikanische Design- und Informatikprofessor John Maeda die Grafikwelt schokkiert. Er weist nach, dass nahezu alle zeitgenssischen Grafiker mit vorgefertigten Programmen arbeiten, durch die sie zu abhngigen Anwendern vorgefertigter Industrienormen werden. Somit bestimmen das Programm und seine Mglichkeiten das Endprodukt - und nicht mehr die Intuition und Absicht des Gestalters, der damit den zentralen Zugang zum schpferischen Prozess verliert. Dagegen setzt Maeda seine Vorstellungen, dass, wer wirklich schpferisch ttig sein will, wieder programmieren lernen muss: DNB = Design by Numbers heit sein selbst entwickelter, interaktiver Grundkurs der Programmierung, der der individuellen Kreativitt keine Programm(ier)grenzen setzt. Creative Code dokumentiert, dass DNB fr eine breite Schicht von Anwendern erlern- und anwendbar ist und prsentiert von Maeda ausgewhlte und kommentierte Arbeiten seiner Studenten.

Creative Coding

Lessons and Strategies to Integrate Computer Science Across the 6-8 Curriculum

Author: Josh Caldwell

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: 9781564846761

Access to high-quality computer science instruction has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. Thanks to this movement, more students start middle school with some foundational knowledge of computer science and coding. This new set of creative skills empowers students to express themselves in powerful ways, but students still need opportunities and support to develop and hone those skills. This book helps classroom teachers in several core content areas develop activities and projects to encourage computational thinking and coding skills, and to build bridges between those skills and practice. For math, science, English language arts and social studies teachers, the resources in this book provide guidance to start integrating coding into their classes to complement and strengthen existing instruction.

The Riddle

Where Ideas Come From and How to Have Better Ones

Author: Andrew Razeghi

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

ISBN: 9780470229125

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 256

While organizations claim to value creativity, they are often at a loss when attempting to conjure up novel ideas, particularly in a world where technology has made information readily available to everyone. As a result, leaders ask, "Where will the next big idea come from?" In response, they allocate significant resources for innovation; however the source of creative inspiration has remained a mystery. Science has shown that it's possible to create conditions under which the mind is more prepared to have insights, or "a-ha! moments." In this fascinating book, Andrew Razeghi examines the precursors to creative insight and offers clear-cut methods for making "Eureka moments" routine practice rather than lucky accidents. Combining the latest scientific research, interviews with current innovators, and studies of history’s most creative minds, he dissects the creative process and presents a practical approach for inspiring innovation.

Data-driven Graphic Design

Creative Coding for Visual Communication

Author: Andrew Richardson

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing

ISBN: 1474259774

Category: Design

Page: 224

Digital technology has not only revolutionized the way designers work, but also the kinds of designs they produce. The development of the computer as a design environment has encouraged a new breed of digital designer; keen to explore the unique creative potential of the computer as an input/output device. Data-driven Graphic Design introduces the creative potential of computational data and how it can be used to inform and create everything from typography, print and moving graphics to interactive design and physical installations. Using code as a creative environment allows designers to step outside the boundaries of commercial software tools, and create a set of unique, digitally informed pieces of work. The use of code offers a new way of thinking about and creating design for the digital environment. Each chapter outlines key concepts and techniques, before exploring a range of innovative projects through case studies and interviews with the artists and designers who created them. These provide an inspirational, real-world context for every technique. Finally each chapter concludes with a Code section, guiding you through the process of experimenting with each technique yourself (with sample projects and code examples using the popular Processing language supplied online to get you started).

The Oxford Handbook of Algorithmic Music

Author: Alex McLean,Roger T. Dean

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0190655712

Category: Music

Page: 648

View: 1115

With the ongoing development of algorithmic composition programs and communities of practice expanding, algorithmic music faces a turning point. Joining dozens of emerging and established scholars alongside leading practitioners in the field, chapters in this Handbook both describe the state of algorithmic composition and also set the agenda for critical research on and analysis of algorithmic music. Organized into four sections, chapters explore the music's history, utility, community, politics, and potential for mass consumption. Contributors address such issues as the role of algorithms as co-performers, live coding practices, and discussions of the algorithmic culture as it currently exists and what it can potentially contribute society, education, and ecommerce. Chapters engage particularly with post-human perspectives - what new musics are now being found through algorithmic means which humans could not otherwise have made - and, in reciprocation, how algorithmic music is being assimilated back into human culture and what meanings it subsequently takes. Blending technical, artistic, cultural, and scientific viewpoints, this Handbook positions algorithmic music making as an essentially human activity.
