The Bayer Kernel
An exploration in bayer-matrix dithering. Based on a four by four bayer-matrix, this piece explores the texture and feel a simple algorithm like dithering can add. The feeling of organic perlin-noise based form contrasting with the sharp rigid form of the dither creates a great feeling of balance. It originally started out as a fun challenge to me, seeing if I could model an algorithm based on a clear goal, completely outside of my comfort zone as an artist. After a lot of research, failure and experimentation, there it was, a correct implementation of a bayer-matrix based dither. I've tried to keep the overall aesthetic close to my style, while taking a small step outside of my oh-so-comfortable clichés.
