Only 8 more to do, so if you want to be part of this initial piece sign up fast! Bellow is a super rough compilation of the videos. The syncing is still a little off, and I need to work on the timing of the beginning, but all in all, it’s coming along!
I got my 3 monitors today! Now I need to figure out out to connect them to my computer so I can get each of these videos onto separate screens. We start the gallery install next week…I better hurry up!
In an attempt to completely destroy a JPG through consecutive saves, I discovered that the JPG eventually reaches a threshold. After a certain point, no more information is extracted from the JPG during the compression.
I decided to separate the “information” that photoshop’s compression algorithm deems important from the unimportant data. Below are the series of images. The first is the original image followed by the the JPG after around 800 compressions. The next three PNGs are the extracted information: important, unimportant info blacked out from compression, and then the extracted unimportant information form the original image.
