Mosaic Experiment

I visited the Minneapolis Institute of Art on November 21, 2018, and was inspired by a painting by Gabriel Orozco (Untitled, 2016). It was in a gallery featuring “Abstraction from Nature.” My variation on his theme is shown below. To generate this image, I am using my self-written mosaic algorithm in a new way, primarily by changing my library or source images from a duplication of the reference image to a set of diagonal gradients, resulting in tesserae that have triangular patterns within the square each tessera.
