2004-2010: Process 13-18

Process 13 (Software 1)


Casey Reas, Process 13 (Software 1), 2006, Software, A rectangular surface densely filled with instances of Element 2, each with a different size and speed. Set the direction of each Element to create horizontal motion. Display the intersections by drawing a circle at each point of contact. Set the size of each circle relative to the distance between the centers of the overlapping Elements. Draw the smallest possible circle as black and largest as white, with varying grays between.

Process 14 (Software 1)


Casey Reas, Process 14 (Software 1), 2006, Software, A rectangular surface densely filled with instances of Element 4, each with a different size and direction. Display the intersections by drawing a circle at each point of contact. Set the size of each circle relative to the distance between the centers of the overlapping Elements. Draw the smallest possible circle as white and largest as black, with varying grays between.

Process 15 (Dual Projection)


Casey Reas, Process 15 (Dual Projection), 2006, Software, Variable Size

Process 15 (Software 1)


Casey Reas, Process 15 (Software 1), 2006, Software, Variable Size , A rectangular surface filled with instances of Element 3, each with a different size and gray value. Draw a small, transparent circle at the midpoint of each Element. Increase the circle's opacity while it is touching another element and decrease this value while it is not.

Process 16 (Dual Projection)


Casey Reas, Process 16 (Dual Projection), 2006, Software, Variable Size, The process executes simultaneously on both sides, the mechanisms are exposed on the right and the process surface generates on the left

The most important element of Process [#] is the text. The text is Process [#] described in English, written with the intention of translating its content into the dynamic medium of software. The software interpretation is secondary to the text.

The English text leaves many decisions open to be determined by a programmer. The decisions must be made using personal judgment, thus the text is interpreted through the act of translating the Process from

English into a machine language. Process [#] was translated by [NAME] from English into [LANGUAGE]. Future Process works are open to alternate interpretations and implementations into diverse programming languages.

The hardware running this software Process is inconsequential. In time, the hardware will inevitably fail. The current hardware was selected to be as robust as is possible with current technology, but contemporary electronics

are fragile. If an element of the hardware fails, it can be replaced without diminishing the work. Eventually compatible components will no longer be available because computing technologies are continually changing. When this event inevitably occurs, a new hardware system will need to be purchased and the software should be rewritten for the new hardware to take advantage of the technical advancements since [YEAR].
