Putin, Snowden & Obama

Algorithmically interpreted series of portraits of Edward Snowden, Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama.

The last piece is a triptych integrating Barack Obama. It felt appropriate to have Edward Snowden sandwiched between Obama and Putin.

The generative algorithm used to draw this portrait was inspired by the NSAs worldwide clandestine surveillance program know as “PRISM”.
