'Weaving Portrait' is the final project for Intro to Computational Media(ICM) course of NYU ITP. 
My plan for this project was making weaving image like a tapestry by combining viewer's portrait and a photo of nature. I made it work by using webcam and prepared landscape photos, but it's not looking united as a piece of image. So I used two smilar portraits taken by photographer David Bailey, who has his own specific style, to make this result looking good aesthetically. 

PROCESS
● Make grid of rotating 3D boxes by using double for loop. In this work, canvas size is 600 x 600 and size of each boxes are 60. That means 12 x 12 boxes on the webGL canvas.
● Load prepared two images which size is the same as canvas, and divide these 12 x 12 sectors by using "get()". And make each sector images to array so that I can map the grid of boxes with images of each sector.
● Map the boxes with divided images. Choose the boxes of odd numbers in the grid to map the first image, and use second image for even number boxes.
