Albany Droste Quilt

Vassar Quilt #2

I’ve made similar Droste-like maps before that are multi-scalar, but this is the first to follow “rules” involved in creating the Droste Effect. To achieve this effect I cut out an octagon out of the center of the map and pasted a 34% reduced duplicate of the map within the octagon. This recursive process allows for multiple internal repetitions because the source map is very large in size (216 megapixels).

View the Google Map of downtown Albany, New York.

View the rest of the details:

: detail :
: zoom out from center :
4,200 x 4,200 reduced to 800 x 800
: zoom to center :

Because of the Droste Effect, the two zooms above, which normally look vastly different, look almost identical.
