Walking in color space
A data visualization experiment based on the translation of images to a trajectory in a color space.
RGB space is the cube formed by all the possible value combinations of the red, green and blue axis.
HSB is the cube formed by hue, saturation and brightness.
When the pixel rows are drawn as trajectories in one of these spaces, contrasting colors among adjacent pixels will result in longer jumps within the space, and will therefore become much more visible. Thus, this visualization method brings forward color variations, but also the general shape of the color palette the image is using.
Lines are tinted according to their departure location.
