Description

[test] is a generative script that tests various image processing/downscaling algorithms, exploring the image's resilience to resolution and dither.

The Mona Lisa is often used for image-based algorithms [compression, noise reduction, image scaling and interpolation, edge detection, color correction, etc …] due to its detailed and recognizable features. Over time, the original painting remains in a continuous flux of digital transformations as it serves as a benchmark for these algorithms & programs. These endless variations push the material limits of the original painting... Pixels are stretched, assorted, down/up-sized, and re-arranged, making the Mona Lisa a digital motif of endless variation.

[test]
is an exploration of form within the limitations of the past, where colors and resolution were limited and screens were textured, hued, faded. Even within these limitations, the generative potential of a single image is endless and the possibility for new images arise with each output.
