Inspired by autodrawn and in response to Harold Cohen’s “Off The Shelf“.
Colour handling from Cohen’s “Colouring Without Seeing“.
I’m going to do this in PHP.
The procedure is:
Get colour palette from colr.
Expand colour name tags using wordnet.
Find matching image at flickr.
Posterise and autotrace image to SVG (autotrace).
Sort colours by brightness.
Choose light-to-dark or dark-to-light.
Add background colour box?
Serve as SVG.
Add log of concept expansion and matching as text (colour names, tags, wordnet expansion, flickr search string, matches, choice)
