Dither Studies: Original Prints

(2011, 2012) Creative Commons License

Dither Studies began with an accident in Photoshop: applying a small color palette to what should have been an empty field of color created instead a complex, seemingly irrational pattern. This was an error diffusion dither: perhaps the fundamental algorithm of digital photography. Applied to a lack of content: a solid color or gradient, and using sharply contrasting colors, these patterns designed to be hidden are revealed. These images are the original version of Dither Studies, still images shown on-screen or as inkjet prints. Covered in the Brooklyn Rail
