Tidy photography [2011]

Implementation of a Self-organizing Map (SOM) in Processing for “organizing” the colors of photographs. Partially inspired by Ursus Wehrli’s Tidy Art book. Code available here.

Try clicking on one of the pictures to see the flowers get tidied up.

Some more examples of the SOM on flowers.

Code available here and on Open Processing. A newer SOM implementation for OpenFrameworks can be found here. ofxLearn + ofxSelfOrganizingMap.
