Processing Tutorial

Processing is a programming language, development environment, and online community. Since 2001, Processing has promoted software literacy within the visual arts and visual literacy within technology. Initially created to serve as a software sketchbook and to teach computer programming fundamentals within a visual context, Processing evolved into a development tool for professionals. Today, there are tens of thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning, prototyping, and production.”

Once you press “Run” within the processing window the words that Laura wanted to randomize appear in the “Sketch” window, now becoming a helpful tool for looking at new word combinations, as well as allowing her the opportunity to shuffle around multiple phrases; Seen here:
