Jessica Andersdotter is a 24 year old artist from Sweden who was bored with regular photography and started pixel sorting to create surreal and new worlds within her art.
Pixel sorting is a visual effect created by taking the rows, columns, or other sets of pixels in an image and ordering them according to some value of those pixels… like how much red is in each pixel, their luminosity, hue, etc.
Here is a Twitter bot that will pixel sort your art for you.

Artist Jeff Koons sold another one of his gigantic sculptures over the weekend. This time, he auctioned off his 18-foot “Coloring Book” sculpture at a charity event in Cannes. The translucent structure ended up selling for over $13 Million. Before anyone gets upset at someone spending that much money on a piece of art, all of the proceeds from the event were donated to AIDS research.
