Tumblr Artist

Adam Ferriss | on Tumblr (b.1988, USA) - Zero-Player Game

Los Angeles based artist Adam Ferriss presents a sundry of photographic phantasmagoria. After receiving a BFA from The Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, MD, he relocated to Los Angeles, CA where he currently resides. His work includes RGB Tricolor separation, mashed pixel array data, color & black & white photographs. 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. (cf. Fast Co Design) You can visit his website or follow his Tumblr for more work.

The File Arts presents:
Star forming region NGC 3324
by Adam Ferriss

The images that science produces of natural and scientific phenomenon are truly awe inspiring. Adam Ferriss takes astronomy pictures and puts them through a quicksort algorithm, adjusting values and repeating the process, until the desired result has been achieved. He uses mathematics to make art from science, adding a sense of bedazzlement and ambiguity to the source material. Read the edition description on The File Arts for more art vs science.

Now available in extreme HD; the image is 3034 x 7748 and would not fit on this Tumblr post as one image. You really have to see it at full resolution to admire the intricacy and detail of the picture. And to get lost in this galaxy of shifting stars.

This edition is priced at the popular and affordable amount of $5,-. For this you get the full download, containing: the final rendered file of 3034 x 7748 pixels and the edited PSD file. The accompanying PDF illustrates the process and the code used to make the piece. And even the source code and the original source images from NASA are included.
