This is not about random()

This is not about random() is a new and very small text piece done in processing for the Rhizome/OpenProcessing 200 Character Tiny Sketch challenge. Having seen too many works made in Processing that have relied on random functions for no other reason than, “it makes things look pretty,” I decided I would not use/make anything like this. I also wanted to try and do work outside of the normal stage environment. So, I opted for doing an animated text loop down in the browser’s status bar about the over usage of random. It was a rather interesting challenge but quite fun in the end to try and condense my thoughts on random into around 80-100 characters. I think a few other short 200 character sketches might be in order or possibly larger ones but still residing in the status bar. Check out the sketch here
