Approximate demarcation

I established a pattern to make a tapestry out of this photograph of Alix taken in July 2000 in the garden of Kerzafloc’h. Said pattern is the result of manual method and computer method combined. It consists of a first computerised reduction of the shades of grey, then of an approximate demarcation with the naked eye of the grey areas thus created, of a handwritten report of those areas and finally of the numbered codification of the outlined surfaces on a decimal basis.
This simplification thus goes back and forth between severe binary algorythm, decimal transcription and the constant blur of vision and gesture.
