SITE

â&#x20AC;˘ The site I was assigned was the new entrance to the music department from the end of the design corridor. â&#x20AC;˘ Due to the site being a relatively new addition to the building the foot fall through the area is not great. â&#x20AC;˘ I wanted to design something that would attract people to the area taking more traffic off the main corridor.

CONCEPT

My concept was to study the movement of people through the space. I wanted to create something that would represent the foot walk through the area. I also wanted to create something that would attract people to the area.

RESEARCH

here I was exploring linear forms, I wanted to show my interpretation of movement through a linear form, I also used these examples to help me understand how to make variations in the code.

DEVELOPMENT 2

CODE FOR DEVELOPMENT 1 for(int i = 1; i < num; i++) { ax[i-1] = ax[i]; ay[i-1] = ay[i]; }

int num = 200; int range = 20; float[] ax = new float[num]; float[] ay = new float[num]; void setup() { size(1024, 768); for(int i = 0; i < num; i++) { ax[i] = width/2; ay[i] = height/2; } frameRate(30); }

ax[num-1] += random(-range, range); ay[num-1] += random(-range, range); ax[num-1] = constrain(ax[num-1], 0, width); ay[num-1] = constrain(ay[num-1], height/4, height/2);

void draw() { background(1); }

for(int i=1; i<num; i++) { float val = float(i)/num * 300+ 51; stroke(val); line(ax[i-1], ay[i-1], ax[i-1], ay[i-1]); }

CODE FOR DEVELOPMENT 2 int num = 200; int range = 20; int diameter = 50; int positionX = 50; int Switch = 0; float[] ax = new float[num]; float[] ay = new float[num]; void setup() { size(1024, 768); for(int i = 0; i < num; i++) { ax[i] = width/2; ay[i] = height/2; } frameRate(30); } void draw() { background(1); A for(int i = 1; i < num; i++) { ax[i-1] = ax[i]; ay[i-1] = ay[i]; }

ax[num-1] += random(-range, range); ay[num-1] += random(-range, range); ax[num-1] = constrain(ax[num-1], 0, width); ay[num-1] = constrain(ay[num-1], height/4, height/2); fill(random(153),138,96,92); if(positionX >= width-diameter/2){ Switch = 1; } if(positionX == diameter/2){ Switch = 0; } if(Switch == 0){ positionX++; //position = position + 1;

} else { positionX--; }

}

for(int i=1; i<num; i++) { float val = float(i)/num * 204.0 + 51; stroke(val); line(ax[i-1], ay[i-1], ay[i], ay[i-1]); }

RANDOM MOVEMENT

Whilst looking at the movement of people throughout the space I noticed everyone moves randomly, this was a major inspiration to my design and ultimately affected the final outcome..

FINAL IDEA

CODE int num = 200; int range = 20; float[] ax = new float[num]; float[] ay = new float[num]; void setup() { size(1024, 768); for(int i = 0; i < num; i++) { ax[i] = width/2; ay[i] = height/2; } frameRate(30); } void draw() { background(1);

for(int i = 1; i < num; i++) { ax[i-1] = ax[i]; ay[i-1] = ay[i]; } ax[num-1] += random(-range, range); ay[num-1] += random(-range, range); ax[num-1] = constrain(ax[num-1], 0, width); ay[num-1] = constrain(ay[num-1], height/4, height/2);

}

for(int i=1; i<num; i++) { float val = float(i)/num * 204.0 + 51; stroke(val); line(ax[i-1], ay[i-1], ax[i], ay[i-1]); }
