As I browsed through DIY flashlight ideas on the internet, I came across a chapstick LED flashlight manual. I was intrigued by the reuse of everyday object and thought I would try making a flashlight with my Burt’s Bees lip balm.
First ever ITP post here! Transitioning from fine art into coding has been tough so far. Instead of directly applying paint I have previously mixed on a palette into the shape of a fish on a canvas, drawing in p5.js editor had similar process but in a complete different language. I created a mini aquarium because I like to collect underwater video footages. It was especially difficult to get the position and size of each bubble right. I had to test out several numbers. However, it took me the longest to get the color I want in each shape as well as the decorative grass at the bottom. I couldn’t figure out a way to repeat the triangle on its own so I had to duplicate and change the parameter one by one.
