Today's project was another digital exploration loosely in the same vein as #8. I worked with a compounded graphic function again, but this time tried to keep it as simple as possible. Using a photo stitch application (Diptic), I cut/stitched a seed of identical black and white rectangles over and over to form 9 tiles. These tiles - arranged in sequence - compose the final image (below).
The original seed is reproduced on the right. When you load multiple images into Diptic, you can select the stitch layout. I oscillated between vertical panes (as in the seed) and horizontal panes in consecutive iterations. I inserted the previous step's result in one of the two panes and filled the other with either solid black or solid white (also alternating). I did no adjustments and kept the borders constant throughout. My early thought was to deliver the final result as the project, but I realized that the process was much more visually interesting than any one step alone. Instead, I tiled all 9 steps in sequence as the final image.
