Ars Multiplicata

Imagine a tool that enables you to create thousands of variations of any visual idea.

What i describe here is a software that generates the images you see in this article. The conceptual ingredients build up a strict framework that still provides infinite possible variations.

The software loads a selection of images found in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum Of New York and assembles them randomly inside a grid. The background is set to black to ensure a high contrast to the lightgrey imagery.

Additionally the algorithm places two circles and two lines on top of the arrangement to amplify the recognition value. The lines deliberately break out of the grid and set a formal contrast to the straight boundaries of the image details. Tiny, black dust particles boost the connotation to analogue photography and the art form of the photogram.
