Text Portrait

To create this text portrait I first generated a word cloud, using an online app, composed of words that others had provided when asked to describe me in a few words. I then multiplied and arranged the word cloud into roughly the shape of my face in the source image. I followed this by dramatically increasing the contrast in the image so that I could create a displacement map to give the text the illusion of wrapping around my face.

Programs Used: Adobe Photoshop, Word Cloud Generator
