This is a solution for an assignment to "amplify the background."
My solution for amplification was just to make more,
so the applet adds to the image by grabbing
similarly colored squares from the image and placing them
around the outer edges.
Of course here are all sorts of convoluted and complex methods that provide 'correct' results for this, but I was more interested in the textured patterns that the tiles made.
This was a one week assignment for John Maeda's Numeric Photography course that took place in the Fall of 1998.
