In this section we covered: setup, draw, functions as parameters, random, and variables

Exercise - an animation with Processing

Now it is time to introduce movement to your Processing sketches. You now know the structure of Processing programs (setup() and draw() methods) and you have been introduced to randomness and variables. With these tools you can bring your compositions to life and create movement over time.

Use these tools to create an animation. You can continue with the composition you started in the previous chapter and add movement to it. You can use movement to create illusions and repetition to create emergent structure. You can draw inspiration from the GIFs below or check out some works made in previous workshops.
