Golan Levin

Golan Levin develops artifacts and events which explore supple new modes of reactive expression. His work focuses on the design of systems for the creation, manipulation and performance of simultaneous image and sound, as part of a more general inquiry into the formal language of interactivity, and of nonverbal communications protocols in cybernetic systems.

Golan Levin est un artiste, un compositeur, un interprète et un ingénieur intéressé par le développement d'artefacts et d'événements qui explorent de nouveaux modes souples d'expression réactive. Son travail est centré sur la conception de systèmes pour la création, la manipulation et l'exécution de l'image et du son en simultané.

Rectified Flowers

2010 | Golan Levin and Kyle McDonald

Kyle McDonald and I were reading about domain shifting between polar and Cartesian geometries, and noticed that flowers make particularly interesting subjects for this transformation. Abusing my open-source BloggieUnwarper panoramic-imaging software with some flower photographs from Flickr, we produced the "flower panoramas" below. This is what one would see if one were doing panoramic imaging from inside a flower...

A complete set of about two dozen such panoramas can be seen in this Flickr set.

The flower rectification software is available here (including source code). The software is built in Processing and uses the ControlP5 library. All of the source photos used in this project were distributed with Creative Commons Attribution licenses. Our software is free in the Public Domain and our own re-processed images are released under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Keywords: polar to cartesian, flowers, warping, unwarping, unwrapping, dewarping, rectification, inverse warping, correction, panorama, macro, macrophotography, Processing, surrealism, flower landscapes, petals, Processing, Java, free source code, free software, polar transformation of flowers.
