Art has a rich tradition of distilling complex ideas for the general public, and the understanding of information should be no exception. The information "revolution" has left us with more data than we are accustomed to, with the onward march of processor speed and storage capacity exceeding our ability to make use of it. The problem is not one of technology, but a lack ofpeople with the means and ability to manipulate and decipher the data in ways that make it meaningful.

    Processing is an open source programming language and environment for people who want to program images, animation, and sound. It is used by students, artists, designers, architects, researchers, and hobbyists for learning, prototyping, and production. It is created to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context and to serve as a software sketchbook and professional production tool. Processing is developed by artists and designers as an alternative to commercial software tools in the same domain.
