2004-2010: Process 7-12

Process 10 (Software 1)


Casey Reas, Process 10 (Software 1), 2005, Software, Position a circle at the center of a rectangular surface. Set its diameter to larger than the longest edge. Set the center of the circle as the origin for a large group of Element 1. When each Element moves beyond the edge of the circle, move its position back to the origin. Draw a line from the centers of Elements which are touching. Set the value of the shortest possible line to white and the longest to black, with varying grays between.

Process 7 (Software)


Casey Reas, Process 7, 2005, Software C++/OpenGL, A rectangular surface filled with varying sizes of Element 1. Draw a line from the centers of Elements which are touching. Set the value of the shortest possible line to black and the longest to white, with varying grays between. Draw the perimeter of each Element as a white line and the center as a black dot.

Process 8 (Software 1)


Casey Reas, Process 8 (Software 1), 2005, Software C++/OpenGL, A rectangular surface densely filled with instances of Element 2, each with a different size and speed. 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. Movie: http://reas.com/media/p8_s.mov

Process 9 (Software 1)


Casey Reas, Process 9 (Software 1), 2005, Position three large circles on a rectangular surface. Set the center of each circle as the origin for a large group of Element 2. When each Element moves beyond the edge of the circle, move its position back to the origin. 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.

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].
