Presents twenty-five composite photographic images that unite the technology of image manipulation by computer with the art of photography, and discusses the techniques used in each
Marrying art and technology, Silvers, the creator of the photomosaics and the software used to assemble them, and Hawley (MIT Media Lab) present mosaics pieced together from thousands of tiny photographs.

Held close up, they explode in a riot of color and movement and exquisite detail. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
