Announcing Lossy Art
Contemporary Digital Art.
tl;dr; You can check out and buy a full-resolution image at lossyart.onbrn.com.
For a couple of months I've been investigating this idea of using lossy compression algorithms to generate interesting-looking images.
AI or ML-generated images have their uses, but I wanted something where I "painted", not just "prompted".
After being able to come up with a few scripts and after many failed attempts, I'm happy to announce Lossy Art, with 4 images to get started.
The idea is that a photo, image, or drawing goes through a custom script of different kinds of compression and scaling, multiple times, and a variation is chosen and tweaked, according to the author's preference.
This is my way of mixing software engineering with graphical art and photography.
Go check it out. I hope it's valuable to you.
Thank you for your attention and kindness. I really appreciate it!
