Weevmee: Your Instagram photos turned artistic images

Posted to Data Art  |  Tags:  |  Nathan Yau

Weevmee autogenrates a woven-like image, based on your Instagram photos.

A lot of us are pretty into photographing our lives. We can look back at each individual image and it magically transports us back in time and engenders a memory. That’s great. But at the end of a long, fun year, we had no creative way to evoke the many memories contained in an entire year’s worth of images. We were hungry to create a single, personal manifestation of a year in photos – one that feels artistic enough to grab our attention, but contains enough clarity that it feels uncannily familiar.

Link your account, set some criteria, and you’re off to the races.
