: rendered at 12,000 X 8,000 :
This rendering is an example of found imagery. An old friend gave me her address in Buena Park, California and on a whim I downloaded the aerial photography of her neighborhood. A few weeks later I decided to open up the TIFF file and prepare it for a rendering. And then a few days later I finally used the imagery in a rendering. Is it found or just delayed? Regardless, it looks cool to me :-)
I truly love the way suburban houses resemble watersheds, albeit square instead of fluid. I would say this rendering and the Mall Quilt are currently my favorite Quilt renderings.
This entry has a better zoom of the center, even though it only has two lines of symmetry.

So yesterday my sister asks me if I can get her imagery of San Fran for her school project. This afternoon I tried going to the USGS and had their web-based GIS not work properly, so I gave up attempting to acquire the imagery. Later today (like 4 hours later), I found an old CD that was laying on top of my TV and I realized that CD had the “San Francisco Memory” rendering on it. So I opened it up, and to my amazement, the spot at which the earth and the ocean meet near the center of the rendering is where the property she is working on is located. On March 5th, I created special memory….

I think my sister is going to love this print. Slowly but surely, I’ve rendered images of all the locations my family is located. In the full size version of this rendering, you can actually see my sister’s apartment! I think my favorite aspect of this rendering this the way the Golden Gate Park appears to give some rectangular symmetry. Here is a Google Map of the same area:
The source image from Space Imaging was rotated so the resulting rendering has Golden Gate Bridge at both the top & bottom center. Of course the full size version allows one to see the bridge in better detail. This is my third rendering of this series.
