This project was a part of the 2018 Noemata Near-Field Communication Digital Art Biennale in Valencia, Spain.

The piece consists of a series of images that serve as a type of “map” to a complete depiction of a single photograph. Each color from the original was isolated and extracted to form its own .jpg file. It is theoretically possible to recombine all 512 parts of the image in Photoshop in order to resolve the original photo.

In-situ, the piece is seen as a QR code placed in public space. The code links to a scrolling collection of component images as well as a slide show (randomized).
