George Washington April – September 2013 Visualizations

Data generated portraits using Google Image Search Results, Grasshopper Parametric Modeling plugin for Rhinoceros, and Founding Father George Washington.

Images are framed Ink Drawings on Canvas executed by a plotter. Frame Size 18″x24″ and completed November 2013.

Each image represents the color average of the top 100 Google Image Search Results as harvested at Noon each Sunday of every week in the represented month.  The averaged colors are dropped into an Excel Spreadsheet and then transported to Rhinoceros, and visualized in 3D using the Grasshopper Parametric Modeling Plugin.

We are to assume data has no bias, however it is created, and presented with a specific motive, leaving the viewer to discern the real from the unreal; An everlasting search for truth being collected bit by bit.
