I’ve been on this forum a while now and I’m often surprised that Codea hasn’t been embraced more by artists and designers for generating what has fashionably known as ‘generative art’.
A nice blog of the sort of thing I mean is here:
I think that most creative types with an interest in such things tend to gravitate towards Processing - as there appears to be a massive cross-platform community on the interweb - as well as probably a lot more code-fragments, tutorials and documentation to get people started.
Personally, I think Codea/Lua is far more powerful. There are lots of creative possibilities that still remain untapped rather than simply for games and creating simple apps etc… I also think ‘generative art’ in its widest sense is probably a fantastic intro for noobies who want to do something immediately interesting with Codea, without getting bogged down with the complexities of creating games and fully fledged apps!
Does anyone use Codea in this way or has done anything vaguely creatively ‘off the wall’ with Codea?
Maybe we can do some sort of competition if theres enough interest!
