'South Downs' by Toby Skinner

South Downs

Leveraging a technique built for the Barcode project, this algororithm splits an image into 2 distinct areas. Artisticly the choice of both image and point of split is key to pulling out the core features of the image into a more abtract setting.

Using a picture of the South Downs (this one taken near Berwick) provides a great contract between green and blue with even some brown wheat fields.

The Skyp pictures are more subtle with entire cells being either white or blue, looking at them from a distance helps to see where clouds and rain could be.

In addition to a divisive split technique, traditional Voronoi graph was also used in some pictures of the sunrise over Eastbourne, however the ame slighted beveled render approach was used.

Can this exact image be re-produced? No, the positioning and sizing of the polygons is semi-random.

Are there any other images on this website that were generated by this algorithm? Parts of the algorithm (Voronoi graph, feature extraction) are used across the site. No other project leverages height maps or Blender Cycles at this time.

Is this a limited edition print? Yes
