Final Project Proposal : Generative Art


Create a physically interactive system of your choice that relies on a multimedia computer for some sort of processing or data analysis. The Final should use BOTH Processing AND Arduino.


I intend to design a generative art piece on processing using analog controls such as a potentiometer and distance sensor connected to Arduino. One such implementation could be to create a spiral where the potentiometer can control the direction and the distance sensor could control the design/ noise level/ thickness of the lines.

My inspiration are following example projects

The rotation of the squares is controlled by the potentiometer

The values from the pulse sensor are visualized in form of a sine wave generative art


At the moment, I am unsure if my project idea is good enough to be the final project for the course and if it will turn out to be as intended or not.
