Banner Ad

How do you use it?
Move the mouse left and right to spin the informational text.

What is it?
This is an interactive banner ad I created to promote a Processing workshop I am teaching for graphic design students. It uses nested for loops to make the grid and the random() function to keep the colors changing. Actually, I created a grid() function that takes values for X-position and width, so the two chunks of grid seen here are the result of two different calls to grid(). The what, where, and when info spins around in P3D space.

Why is it cool?
The aforementioned grid() is a good example of user-defined functions. Also, I just love playing with type in 3-D space.
