Wow! Who would have thought that I could make something so different, yet so similar with the EXACT same source imagery as Georgetown Quilt #3? As mentioned before, the only difference between the two is the location of the reflected seam in the source imagery. Instead of placing centeral seam of the modified imagery on Key Bridge, I inversed the location by placing the Key Bridge on the outside.
When preparing the imagery for a rendering there are four tiles that comprise the geographic tessellation, but only one of the tiles retains the proper orthographic characteristics (ie, its how it should look when looking at a map, the other three are flipped horizontally & vertically). By moving the orthographically correct tile to one of the different parts of the 4 tiled mosaic I am able to create to 4 completely different outcomes. I sincerely feel that this “discovery” theoretically allows me to have 4 different tessellations for each geographically specific area.
That is definitely my next project, albeit one that will take 4 times as long to prepare & render, but I think it’s worth it. I’d love to see 4 different renderings of the exact same geographic area placed side by side!!! I wonder what location I’ll use? I want to make a rendering of DuPont Circle….hmmmm…..
Your renderings just keep getting more intricate, intriguing, and innovative!!!
I would luvvvvs to see the #3 and the #4 next to one another in your blog for a direct compare/contrast! Soon enough these numbers will exponentially grow :) Such different
variations are being created by the same scope of a speicific neighborhood
— and I can’t wait to see the future versions!
Just goes to show you that one area of a geographical location, and all that contained within it, can be viewed upon in an infinite number of ways…..do it…..show me.
