After working on Arabic culture, after having designed a typographic system, and after having explored the ornament and the motif, we wanted to confront the image itself. The idea is to interpret photographs, paintings and other figurations in an intertwined way. For this, we thought of using ornamental patterns as a "weft point". It's a bit technical! In fact, instead of using dots of different sizes to render the values of an image, we use darker or darker patterns.
Based on this principle, we developed a software with Lilian Buzer, a teacher-researcher specialized in graphic processing, which allows us to choose the basic patterns, the scale... and to generate a file usable for printing.
We tested it in "life size" by printing a four by three meter poster that we went to stick in the subway.
