Bla Bla Bla is a sound reactive application for iPhone and iPad created by the students at the design department of IUAV of Venice and later at the ISIA of Urbino. This app is a little selection of an exercise called “Parametric Mask” with aim to introduce students to “Procedures of Basic Design” and the basics of programming.
The new exercises introduce the use of a programming language as a tool that allows to solve problems. It’s not a programming workshop, but a way to use numbers, math and logic, which permits to show objectively how we solve a design problem. Students attend the first year of a design school and have never programmed before. The programming language used in the workshop is Processing. The porting for iOs was written in Open Frameworks.
