“For this particular collection of greyscale patterns, Ferriss used code written in the popular programming language Processing that employed two techniques: pixel sorting and cellular automata. Starting with a photograph of a wave crashing against a craggy shore, Ferriss first used code to sort the pixels from brightest to darkest (his program was a tweaked version of one written by fellow artist Jeff Thompson). Then Ferriss made a greyscale version of that image and sorted its pixels again. At this point in the process, the original ocean scene is totally unrecognizable, having been rearranged pixel by pixel into a bouquet of monochrome diamonds.”
Cool! Thanks Everlane!
Witch Head being used for the Heterotic debut album!
It was awesome to work with Mike Paradinas on this project. His label, Planet Mu, includes artists like Luke Vibert, Machinedrum, and obviously µ-Ziq — some of my favorites!
