Flickr Flow — Poetry Through Technology.

A visualization of the colors contained in photographs taken in Lincoln Park over the course of a calendar year. The resulting image depicts the ebb and flow of time, the passage of seasons, in a never-ending circle.

A Flickr Flow visualization can be created for any geographic location. Each work is realized as one-of-a-kind photographic prints facemounted to plexiglass and accompanied by an autographed card by the artists.

Pictured: "Flickr Flow / Lincoln Park" based on algorithms mapped to the 216 hues in the web color palette.

Framing and finishing available on request.

About The Prints

Flickr Flow is imaged at true high resolution to glossy photographic paper using archival pigmented inks. 11 inks are used in the creation of the piece to accentuate the full gamut of HDR color. Face-mounted to plexiglass, the visualization has the look of blown glass.
