I’m teaching a couple of classes on digital tools, Rhino and Grasshopper are the centerpieces because that’s what I know best but I’m looking for another parametric/generative platform that pairs more easily with raster-based design, with an emphasis on outputting visualizations.
Right now I’m considering lessons on Processing.py, P5.js or Touch Designer. I was wondering if there were any other suggestions. Leaning toward Touch since it’s also visual programming but have no experience. I just want to do an introduction at the end of the course, but I’m also interested myself. I really enjoy creating animations from sliders in grasshopper and have to remind myself to stay focused on the geometry I’m creating and not “cool gifs.”
