my design work in and out of architecture

The Way of the Dinosaurs




I created this piece entirely in Processing with minimal post production. The algorithm processes a specified set of characters in a number of specified fonts to extract the perceived “brightness” of a character on a blank background. This information is then used to plug the best matching characters into a matrix of sample points on a given image. The algorithm is a bit messy since I did not intend to publish it publicly, but if you know the language and want to experiment, email me and I can shoot it your way; I’m all about sharing.



The whole piece.
