Dither Studies: Hand Renders

(2016 - now)

The Dither Studies are created by giving the computer an impossible task: to approximate a solid color using a palette of two complementary colors that will never visually recombine. They are then hand-rendered by the artist, painstakingly recreating the computer's output. The dithering algorithm, responsible for these patterns, is perhaps the fundamental algorithm of digital photography and has changed little since the 1970s. Read more on Dither Studies...
