I’m at the JsConf in Reykjavik. The venue is the fantastic Harpa, with wonderful artwork by Olafur Eliasson. We live in the hotel with the Sky Lounge just across the street.
Today art and code mixed into an amazing creative cocktail. I cannot wait to experiment with the creative libraries from these wizards of code.
There were several talks on JavaScriot as a creative tool. Raisa Cuevas introduced to augmented reality, and she introduced several creative tools, such as:
Paint Splatter: The making of an interactive artwork
Halldór Eldjárn & Þórður Hans Baldursson introduced the code behind the interactive artwork decorating Harpa this week. On the website http://paint.jsconf.is/ you can choose the colors on the building. They told about the work, and how they wrote the creative code.
“make things that makes things”

Among the tools in her toolbox was https://threejs.org/
The first keynote speaker was a nodejs talk, along the lines of this: “version 1.0.4 of XX is not there yet. Please google”. My mind drifted away, but perhaps there were hidden gems for the Nodejs adepts. But at the end of the day JsConf gave many ideas for creative code.
Code is poetry.
