The inspiration for this project was my love for the rain and the snow. I find them to be rather calming and I just enjoy experiencing that weather. Thus, my goal for this project was to create a window to that experience.
Using Dan Shiffman’s The Nature of Code, I used the Box2D for Processing library to create this. I thought that this was a bit technically challenging since it’s been a while since I used Processing and the trigonometry with Box2D’s world was hard to get right. Nevertheless, I find that my goals for this project was met, but I think that it would be much stronger if I created or found some ambient music to pair with it.
I wasn’t sure if I wanted this project to be horizontal or vertical. I like both orientations, but if I were to display this on a wall I would use a very long horizontal orientation.
