a picture is worth a thousand words

Simone de Beauvoir

I want to share with you my work in progress files of my new tool, still in beta stage. The goal is to be able to spread full phrases, instead of single words. It’s more complicated and I still need time to adjust the variables and the find the better way to get nice results, but you can take a look at my current tryouts.

I’m thinking that it will be very usefull to spread quotes, lyrics or even full books. There is a big scope ahead…

The idea of the program is to find the most energy paths in the image and put a full phrase in each valid path. I added a lot of radomness so paths don’t collapse at the begining.

For the image I took a protrait of Simone de Beauvoir and spread some of his quotes (in french!). here you have the quotes and the translation:

On ne naît pas femme: on le devient (One is not born a woman, but becomes one).
Choisir la vie, c’est toujours choisir l’avenir (Choose life, always choose the future).
L’art est une tentative pour intégrer le mal (Art is an attempt to integrate evil).
Se vouloir libre, c’est aussi vouloir les autres libres (I wish that every human life might be pure transparent freedom).

A couple of tryouts…

Dedicated to Angel, who pointed me to Simone.

And finally another sample… some kind of remake of one of my old files, Lennon and the best song ever… Imagine.

  1. Very neat ideas and images. I like the way you’re doing this. I had a similar idea once, but no idea how to make it a reality. It’s exciting to see what you’re doing.
