Image Foam Technique

By: Jeff Clark    Date: Sun, 03 May 2009

The excellent computational artist known as Quasimondo (Mario Klingemann) has posted an interesting set of images to Flickr that he created with an algorithm he calls 'image foam'. The technique has some similarites to what I do to generate some of my images - World Peace , and Einstein for example. The base concept is to fill 2D space using component images(or letters) without any overlap. Quasimondo has used more complex and colourful constituent images and placed them in a more varied and interesting manner than I have. Smaller versions of a few of his images are shown below - click on them to see his originals.
