Colorholics meet the Cinema

I was recently referred by a coworker to the wonderful work of Jason Salavon. His body of work focuses on the relationship between color-association and digital media. Utilizing his own computer processing methods, he breaks down video scenes to their mean average color and then arranges the color blocks from left-to right to create beautiful prints of pure tonality.

In his recent installation, The Top 25 Grossing Films of All Time you view all 25 films at once in the same one-color-per-frame format. Best of all, you don't have to travel to view the show- you can download segments of the footage directly from his website.

Stepping outside of the cinema, he also has an extensive body of similar work-styles on the rest of his site. Every Playboy Centerfold was particularly interesting.
