Generative Art for Python (Paperback)
Generative Art for Python instructs beginner level to advanced programming using Python programming language. Contained in the book are many examples that integrate both graphics and sound, plus core programming concepts such as conditions, functions, loops and arrays. On the beginner and intermediate levels, graphics concepts such as manipulating images, animation, texture mapping and video techniques are covered. Advance level concepts include sound effects and audio, 3D geometry and animation, and interactive games. James R. Parker enables artistic expression through computer programming by implementing best practices in art and design.
Dr. James R. Parker studied mathematics and computer science before ending up as a Professor of Art at the University of Calgary. His expertise ranges from computer simulation, image processing, artificial intelligence, game design, and generative art. When asked, he claims to be an expert in 'complex interacting systems', but don't ask him to tie a half hitch. He lives on a small ranch in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
