Stardust Mosaic Portraiture

Sergio Albiac’s Stardust. An experiment in generative portraiture is providing free mosaic portraiture for a limited time.  The results are generated, slowly but automatically, using a collection of images of stellar incubators captured by the Hubble Space Telescope.  In the artist’s words:

As a theme for this series of portraits, I’ve choosen the concept of nucleosynthesis or the process of creation of new atomic nuclei from pre-existing matter that takes place at cosmic scale. We humans, are believed to be novel combinations of cosmic stardust. It could be argued that the whole universe is the biggest running generative art installation today. Personal beliefs will determine who we think the artist is.

Follow the provided instructions to give the project access to an appropriate image and a few days later a completed mosaic will be delivered.  The following is a completed portrait of my daughter.
