Title: [De]fragmenting Architecture
I exhibited a 10-minute, processed video artwork entitled [De]fragmenting Architecture on September 14 at the First Workshop on Computer Vision For Fashion, Art and Design as part of the 2018 European Conference on Computer Vision in Munich​.



This video piece is inspired by the perceptual mechanisms of the human visual system, which extracts & analyzes color, spatial, edge, & symbol aspects separately, then integrates them into a composite, perceived image. Software fragments each still image into overlays based on dominant colors, then uses them as fading curtains that rotate & reveal the underlying, composite, original image. Contrasting-color vegetation images and contrasting-geometry architectural images work especially well with this technique.

Technical description: Video runs 10 minutes. Custom software posterizes 8 copies of each original image according to dominant color (8 layers, 1 per color), builds 8 partially transparent overlays using original colors selected for 1-of-8 layers by its dominant color, then uses these overlays as curtains, rotating & fading them until revealing the original image, then repeats with a new image. See section 4 of this paper. Proceedings of the 33rd Annual Spring Conference of the Pennsylvania Computer and Information Science Educators (PACISE) Shippensburg University of PA, Shippensburg, PA, April 6-7, 2018. This won the Best Faculty Paper award.
