Xanthopesia. A visual condition where things appear yellow.


I got Xanthopesia today. Not a good one for getting me away from literal readings of my words.

I decided to make a simple software tool in Processing that would apply a yellow tint to a chosen image, to demonstrate the effects of Xanthopesia. This tool loads a user-selected image and gives it a yellowish tint.

7 in 7 Design Constraints

  1. Each piece will be themed around a word that will not repeat, chosen at random from

  2. To provide context, the featured word must be present in the piece, but no other words are allowed.

  3. Any time-based media (like motion and sound) must be created procedurally.

  4. The only colors allowed are black, white, and gray.
