I've been messing around with Structure Synth lately, and it's a lot of fun. The scripting language it uses is great for most of the things I want to design. Still, there are a few situations where my students and I have not been able to make Eisen Script do what we require. For that, what better language to use for "playing nicely" with Structure Synth than Python?
I'm writing a Python module to help students bridge the gap between their imagination and Eisen Script.
The image above was made during some rendering experiments I ran today. Trying to find the right combination of depth of field and reflectivity is more fun than it sounds.
I teach Computer Science at a progressive public high school, using mostly open source tools. I improvise a lot and spend most of my time working with students and writing code in Python, Java, Obj-C, LISP....
