There have been three years that I haven’t used Process at all. And this is my first time to refamiliarize myself with it. It did take me some time to re-understand, even the basic concepts.
I took a look at the book that Cici recommended in class, “Interaction of Color” by Josef Albers. One image (included below) reminds me the in-class exercise of the repetitive line (see below) we did. I think by adding the squares between the lines, I would be able to recreate Alber’s work.

However, when I started, I was struggling with the “Mask” of the original image. A group of shapes including both lines and squares needs to be rotated within a mask, which means some parts of the shape group should be covered and unseen. While I failed to do that.
Instead, I inserted a “Random” function into the “Rotation”, which allows the computer to move the groups of shapes. But I prefer to only keep the line, which makes the image simple but aesthetic.
