This student design project was carried out for client Robert Aish at Autodesk.

The original design brief was:

Seymour Papert’s Logo, Steven Tanimoto’s Pixel Calculator, and John Maeda’s Design By Numbers have all tried to teach basic computational concepts by focusing on image manipulation. Your task is to design a new educational language, suitable for use by first-year art or architecture students. Your system should offer a sufficiently engaging aesthetic experience to keep art students interested at least until they have acquired the concepts in the introductory sections of your own Java course. (You don't have to use Java syntax.)
