The Arleigh Burke-Class Destroyer Benfold by Darby Anderson

MEDIUM: Software Application; Digital Photography

This is a “triangulated” version of a photograph of a U.S. destroyer ship firing a practice round off the coast of Southern California. The original photo is also featured below for comparison.

I wrote an application to read each pixel in a photograph and create a large triangle using the color. The resulting effect blurs the image, but often the scene can be recognized. I also think the triangles give the scene a shattered look. Shattering and blurring connected with war for me. The white line is left up for interpretation. The application creates a slightly different version of the image each time it runs.
