[De]fragmenting Architecture

Publication Date



This 10-minute video piece is inspired by the perceptual mechanisms of the human visual system, which extracts & analyzes color, spatial, edge, & symbol aspects separately, then integrates them into a composite, perceived image. Software fragments each still image into overlays based on dominant colors, then uses them as fading curtains that rotate & reveal the underlying, composite, original image. Contrasting-color vegetation images and contrasting-geometry architectural images work especially well with this technique.
