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.
