My next stage after sound experiments, was to create what I wanted the sketch to look like. I based the process on a concept idea I noted previously. This idea was to create a ball that made its own path around the screen every time someone walked past. The effect would be multiple balls making their own path around the screen to represent our own paths we make, intersecting and interacting with each other.

My first problem to overcome was to create a ball that moved around and stayed inside the screen. I did this using an array to avoid typing the same code repeatedly  After creating this sketch I then came across another problem, making the balls starting point random as well as pairing this sketch with an earlier camera sketch.

I have now created this sketch which produces multiple balls every time a movement is made in front of the camera. I also randomised the starting location of each one. However every time a movement is made multiple balls are created rather than just one.

I am also unsure wether to incorporate the sound experiments as they were not entirely successful.
