ArtLung: I am Joe Crawford. Welcome to my website circa July 2008. I am a web developer. I live in Moorpark, California, USA. I work in Los Angeles, and have lived elsewhere and done many surprising things. I put up the first ArtLung website 12 years ago, moved it to artlung.com 10 years ago, nd I've been blogging for 7 years. I'm still learning, every day. Welcome.

Whitney Brothers; Processing, Jbum

At BarCampLA, Jim Bumgardner was inspirational for many things. One small thing was for pointing out these two films:

“Lapis,” a short film by James Whitney:

“Catalog,” a short film by John Whitney, 1961

Over on Coverpop, Bumgardner shows off work inspired by John Whitney: Whitney Music Box which is beautiful and hypnotic and surprisingly musical. Mathematics and music indeed!

Inspired by this and Jim’s work, I downloaded Processing for the first time and began playing based on some of the examples on his Processing page.

I had a real good time at BarCampLA-7.

Thanks for the nod, Joe! You will probably enjoy the openprocessing.org site, where I’ve posted a few more Whitney and Whitney-esque examples:
