Visual Assignment 13: Averaging Concepts Using Flickr – Take a concept, one word, and plug it into Flickr and take the first 50 images and average them using Photoshop or similar program. Step by step instructions available at http://is.gd/ku3UF
I LOVED LOVED LOVED this assignment and decided to do 3 of them. 🙂 The above listed tutorial was perfect and very easy to follow. I am floored by how amazingly well these turned out. I can’t stop staring and getting lost in them…
Since Valentine’s Day is in two days, I decided to search the word “valentine,” and the resulting image is amazing!
For this, I searched the term “psychology,” and the resulting averaged image is mysterious, dark, and mesmerizing… I think it sort of symbolizes how our thinking tends to be structured and boxed in, but there’s a much bigger world outside of it.
I wanted to see if the word “spring” would give me a much more colorful averaged image than other words. It certainly did! This one turned out lovely. 🙂
