Make your own Lichtenstein with the DotBot generator from the Art institute of Chicago
Make your own Lichtenstein using the DotBot generator at roy.artic.edu. If you post your photo on the Art Institute of Chicago's Facebook timeline, they will put your photo into their DotBot Self-Portraits album. Most people just shoot themselves making a funny face.
One person made a Monet into a DotBot Lichtenstein. Very clever. Since the Art Institute is actually taking the time to look at these photos, I wanted to do something clever as well.
Since the the Art Institute of Chicago is making a point of how Roy Lichtenstein's drawings got translated into his paintings, I thought it would be interesting to take one of his photos and see how the DotBot translates it. I took a screenshot of the Ohh...Alright... drawing, and printed it out. And then I held it up to my webcam to make the DotBot. Here's what turned out:
I'd have to say that Roy Lichtenstein did a better job of translating his sketches into halftone patterns than DotBot. But the DotBot generator is a fun way to get people involved with art.
It's also rather rad seeing my submission appearing on the homepage of Art Institute's Facebook.
