“ .. we wanted to generate pictures that would be perceived as totally different depending on the viewing distance. Thus my prize-winning One Picture is Worth a Thousand Words would just look like printed letters and English text from nearby. But at intermediate viewing distances One Picture appeared to be a weaving pattern and finally, from afar, it would look like a human eye looking at you. “
