Generative Kaleidoscope

May 2012
Processing, Flickr Api, Photoshop


These works are part on an on-going series, in which the ideas of chance encounters on the internet and human perception are explored.These prints were intended to have a perceptive duality to them. From afar , the details of print saturates to purely decorative pattern and color,while up-close, the details in which makeup the whole start to become visible and perceivable. The Image was generated using software created by the artist. The software searches the internet, specifically flickr.com, and finds the most recently uploaded photos from people from all over the world. Once it finds these images the software layers and collages the hundreds of images together in both systematic and random ways resulting in a labyrinth of colors and pattern.
