Computational Form

Computational Form is a class at Parsons that explores generative art, parametric design, and procedural generation. In this class, we will investigate a creative process in which form is created by following defined instructions. We will write instructions that a computer will follow to create images, animations, sounds, and sculptures.

We will make things that make things.
