Diana Lange has created Processing application that searches for images on Flickr and creates these beautiful compositions based on the color data of the image. She explains:
This little program looks for photos on flickr by a given search word. Afterwards, the colors of the photos are analyzed. The color itself gets detected and how often each color is found. This data is the foundation of every stem. Each segment represents one color of the photo, the diameter shows the quantity. The cell resolution in all segments is based on the brightness of the color.
Created using Processing, Lee Byron’s Mesh library and ProXML library.
