by Josh Rigling

Close up video of Human Male face processed into a temperature map through a series of open source file conversion algorithms.

Processed video is then processed into a separate customized Java image processing algorithm where the video is converted to terrain data.

Terrain data is analyzed for height map data and the color and height is chosen for each frame.

Finally, a looping animation is manually created from each layer of terrain.
