Obsessions (Flickr Pets) (Drawing Machines, Spring 2008)

Brief: A series of vector-graphic images generated from pet photographs found on Flickr.

Keywords: Cuteness, obsession, pets, vector graphics, gesture, form, vector fields, prints.

Media: Flickr Set

These painterly images document the love and obsession that people express for their pets ... in the form photographs uploaded to the Flickr website. For this project, I collected pictures of dogs, cats, puppies (clearly, a different species than dogs), kittens, hamsters, and bunnies on and generated new images based on the features and colors of the originals. These high resolution images, which share a likeness to Gustav Klimt's work, are still images taken from animations that were made in C++ using the openFrameworks library.
