Pixel Sorting – web, code

I spent Summer 2017 as a Research Fellow at UGA’s Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities, where I investigated different forms of computational creativity. Most of my research centered around creative applications of machine learning, but one of my first experiments had to do with pixel sorting: taking in an image as input, and outputting an image of the same size, with the pixels sorted.

I found this to be a great introductory method for design systems thinking, so I made a couple simple tools that allow people to use this method in other work. The first is a web tool, which you can find here. The second is a native application built with openFrameworks, which you can find on github.

I’m presenting at the CURO Symposium in April, but until then here’s my presentation from the Summer Research Forum, if that’s something you’re into.
