This image was created by dividing up a picture of Marilyn into small tiles, and then arranging those tiles in a grid. The arrangement was based on an algorithm which attempted to optimally suggest the big picture of JFK with the grid of tiles. Then the grid of tiles was used as a printer's screen to ``halftone'' the JFK image. We ran the algorithm twice (using two different size images of Marilyn) and then cut-and-pasted between the two resulting images to select the best parts from each.
This piece was displayed in the Xerox PARC Algorithmic Art Show in 1994.
