Playing off the globes in the hourglass logo of the WikiLeaks website, computer artist Charis Tsevis has created a highly detailed portrait of Julian Assange. Represented entirely using 3d images of the earth, each planet is rotated so their different face dictates the color. The original image is a hugely detailed 6656 x 6656 pixels. We think it is absolutely brilliant.
You may remember a feature we did a while ago on Tsevis’ highly detailed vector graphic and mosaic works. Each image draws the viewer in, revealing the framework of its delicate construction. For the image below Tsevis used custom developed scripts and techniques in Synthetik Studio Artist, Adobe Creative Suite and Apple QuickTime Pro.
