Submission title: Particle
Submitted by: Anonymous
Participant’s field of work/interest: Mechanical Engineering
Participant’s Image Description:
"Images taken with a microscope of the time evolution of a micro-size sprayed particle on a substrate taken from Fig. 3 at page 215 of a submitted article:
A. McDonald, M. Lamontagne, C. Moreau, S. Chandra. Impact of plasma-sprayed metal particles on hot and cold glass surfaces, Thin Solid Films, 514, 1-2, pp. 212-222, 2006-08-30."
For the participant data is:
-Raw data = images and measurements
-Image processing allows analysis
-Particles that impinges on a substrate & produces a temperature change – how do they connect to each other
-Forms a thin film – analysis of evolution"
Translated and woven by Geneviève Moisan.

Translation to Weaving
For this weaving, we decided to play with the black and white effects of the impacts of the particles, as well as the effect of the translation of the micrographs onto the digitized .pdf version of the article which is meant to be printed. As weaving is a type of image processing, could it allow more analysis of this data through the process?

Technique and Process Notes
The shades of greys were to be carefully chosen. Also, looking at the pictures, we noticed that a few of them had grey glitches. We highlighted one of them with a tiny grey brocade that could almost look like a glitch in the weaving as well.
Colour reduction for weaving design (click to enlarge).
The weaving is smaller than initially planned due to the restriction of the project. It would have been nice to get two sets of the evolution images.
