Toby Skinner Generative Art Barcode
'Barcode' by Toby Skinner


Image data provides the source for the colour palette in this algorithm, two horizontal lines of features are evenly plotted about 50px from each other (imagine a double yellow line). This is used to form a voronoi graph which, when rendered, splits the image in two.

The colour of each segment is the colour of the feature point (not the average surface within the segment, this leads to less stark contrast).

By carefully placing the line of features across different objects with contrasting colours we can create very vibrant and striking results.

Can this exact image be re-produced? Technically yes, if the exact Y-coordinate of the features lines is stored then the same output could be recreated. Unfortunately non of the coordinates were stored for any of these images so no, these images cannot be exactly reproduced.

Are there any other images on this website that were generated by this algorithm? Prism uses the same algorithm but adds vertical feature lines, Downs uses the same algorithm but renders slightly differently (also uses a combination of horizontal and vertical lines).

Is this a limited edition print? No

How can I buy a print? Please get in touch with your requirements.
