Geek Art

Some years ago I came across Jason Salavon‘s art, and specifically, his averaged images, such as the Portrait series. I’ve been mesmerized ever since. More recently I re-discovered Kevin L. Ferguson’s Film Visualization series, in which “each image within the montage is the sum image of every 10th second of each film.” Other works have been created by Jim Campbell, and although similar, is a different style. I’ve begun my journey down the rabbit hole and intend to create ‘geek art’ using Python, Processing and various other tools. I currently use Arlo Carreon’s (former coworker) python-image-average script, which he did me the favor of modifying, based on Neil Kandalgaonkar‘s original script that averaged Flickr images.
