Breaking Politk Symmetry
I love the notion of creating symmetry in an image and then breaking it in some way. Some variations on the 'politk mask' MSG experiments that show this off.
There was a Studio Artist News article posted recently that discusses the visual perception of symmetry in the brain. One reason why the use of symmetry in art is so effective is that the brain is hard-wired to perceive it on a sub-conscious level.
These images were created in Studio Artist by directed evolution of MSG processors. The MSG preset is processing a head shot source image creating an abstraction of the original representational political head shot image.
