School of Art 4D and graphic design professor Evan Meaney, along with the Electrical Engineering & Computer Science department’s Amy Szczepanski, have created an app that converts data into images. Using the new Null_Sets app, they are converting works of literature, such as works of William Shakespeare and classics like Moby Dick and Frankenstein to name a few, into various bands of color, creating abstract pictures.
The amazing development is covered by the Knoxville News-Sentinel’s online edition, and the full article can be read here.
Shown here is an excerpt from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, converted into a JPEG. This image was created using the Null_Sets app.
