in this experiment my task was to generate portraits algorithmically
from very simple geometric elements.
as i was always fascinated by the simple shape of circles and forms
built from them, i created an environment which procedurally
transforms portraits to images described by tangent circles without
any interaction needed.
thousands of circles were packed into each of these pictures and the
result is like soda bubbles forming something organic and chaotic but
ordered enough allowing to recognize a new, complex figure.
